2022 Pepin Fellowship Recipient
2021 Pepin Fellowship Recipient
Qianyi is from China. The fellowship will be used to support his summer research in prebiotic evolution study. He is working on the study of non-linear dynamics of complex chemical reaction networks, specifically, models of prebiotic evolution.
2020 Pepin Fellowship Recipient
Santosh is from Kathmandu, Nepal. He plans to use the award to fund summer research to investigate how cells regulate the use of internally stored fat based on metabolic needs using super-resolution microscopy. He is focused on developing and applying single molecule imaging techniques to study biophysical processes.
2019 Pepin Fellowship Recipient
Chris' research is in computational astrophysics, specifically modeling the interactions of AGN jets with the intracluster medium as a diagnostic measure to probe the dynamics of the ICM.
