Marcella Manivel receives NSF Graduate Research Fellowship

MINNEAPOLIS / ST. PAUL (4/14/2023) – PhD student Marcella Manivel was recently awarded a Graduate Research Fellowship by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). Manivel is a second-year graduate student in the Mathematics doctoral program.

Marcella Manivel came to the University of Minnesota in 2021 after completing her undergraduate studies at Carleton College. She studies number theory and automorphic forms with Professor Paul Garrett. 

“I am elated to have received the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. My research proposal was on the benefits of understanding the spectrum of certain operators on spaces of automorphic forms and my personal statement was on my passion for working towards a mathematical reality that is more supportive and inclusive. I am thrilled that the National Science Foundation is interested in supporting me in these endeavors and excited to see where this work goes,” Manivel says.

The NSF GRFP recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited United States institutions. The program also seeks to support the participation of underrepresented groups in STEM graduate studies. The three-year fellowship provides an annual stipend of $37,000.
