2021 Pepin Recipients
Hsiu-Chung Yeh
Hsiu-Chung is from Taiwan. He plans to use the money to support his current research on quantum computation. His research focuses on integrable systems and large deviation statistics. Recently, he started to work on quantum computation.
Qianyi Sheng
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 Adhikari

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 Nolting

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.
