2018 Recipients

Winners

The college is pleased to announce the winners of the Brian and Gayle Hill Undergraduate Research Fellowships. This year, because of the large number of high quality applications we received, the Hills made additional funds available to increase the number of fellowships. As a result, we’re able to award Hill Fellowships to a total of eight students this year:

  • Archana Dahal, for the project “Studying Structures in Innermost Region (D-Ring) of Saturn’s Ring System” (working with Professor Matt Hedman)
  • Courtney Kennedy, for the project “Determining Antifungal Resistance Mechanisms in Yeast Using High Throughput Robotics” (working with Professor Paul Rowley)
  • David Richards, for the project “Effect of Donor-Recipient Ratio on Horizontal Viral Transmission Rates in Drosophila melanogaster (working with Professor Christine Parent)
  • Megan Schlussler, for the project “Investigating the Genetic Causes of Autism Spectrum Disorder” (working with Professor Peter Fuerst)
  • Frankie Scholz, for the project “Antibody Escape Mutations in Respiratory Syncytial Virus” (working with Professor Tanya Miura)
  • Carly Scott, for the project “Applying New Hydrographic Data to Ocean Systems: Creating a High-Resolution, Continuous Profile of the Greenland Boundary Current” (working with Professor Tim Bartholomaus)
  • Eli Smith, for the project “Multistability Analysis of Sound Effects on Binocular Vision” (working with Professor Linh Nguyen)
  • Tristie Stucker, for the project “Spectral Theory of Orthogonal Matrices Over F2” (working with Professor Stefan Tohaneanu)
