Jamin Rader chosen for DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship
Jamin Rader, who will join Elizabeth Barnes’ research group in Fall 2019, has been awarded a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship. DOE CSGF students receive full tuition and fees plus an annual stipend and academic allowance, renewable for up to four years, to apply to Ph.D. study in computational science or engineering. Less than 5 percent of applicants are chosen for the fellowship each year. Rader is the third ATS student to receive the DOE CSGF.
In addition to required courses in engineering, computer science and applied mathematics, DOE CSG fellows also must complete a three-month research practicum at one of 21 DOE sites. The practicum is intended to broaden the fellow’s experience outside their main thesis area, expose them to alternative methods or tools, and allow them to apply their skills to new problems in computational science.
“I am excited to use this [fellowship] to learn about machine learning and apply it to real-world problems related to, but separate from, my graduate studies – and then, of course, take this new skill and apply it to my studies at CSU,” Rader said.
Rader also received a one-year AMS Graduate Fellowship, which he had to decline in order to use the DOE fellowship.
