Chao receives computational innovation graduate fellowship

MSE is pleased to announce that Ph.D. candidate Paul Chao has received the College of Engineering's J. Robert Beyster Computational Innovation Graduate Fellowship for 2022-2023. The award will cover full tuition, healthcare and a stipend for two semesters.

A member of the Shahani group, Chao’s research aims to understand the solidification of eutectic alloys using advanced x-ray characterization techniques.

The J. Robert Beyster Computational Innovation Graduate Fellows Program was established by Dr. J. Robert (BSE M ’45, BSE P ’45, MSE Phys ’47, PhD ‘50) and Betty Beyster to acknowledge that Ph.D. students are “the originators and carriers of innovative ideas and solutions from the University to the world,” and to emphasize the pivotal role that high performance computing must play in solving our societal challenges.

Congratulations, Paul!
