College Award Gives Nod
to Five EHP Students
Five of the six engineering seniors selected as the 2009 recipients of the Rev. Thomas A. Steiner, C.S.C., Award are EHP students. They are Angela Comana, electrical engineering; Christopher Fallin, computer science and engineering; Sarah Lane, aerospace engineering; Timothy Politano, chemical and biomolecular engineering; and Claire VerHulst, mechanical engineering. Jessica Winschel, civil engineering and geological sciences, was the sixth 2009 Steiner recipient.
Go to EHP Students
Two of the three graduating seniors in the College of Engineering who have been awarded 2009 National Science Foundation (NSF) graduate fellowships are EHP participants. They are: Christopher Fallin, computer science and engineering, and Claire VerHulst, mechanical engineering. Another engineering undergraduate, Rachel Paietta, aerospace engineering, also received a fellowship.
The NSF Graduate Fellowship Program supports outstanding graduate students in engineering, mathematics, science, and technology, who are pursuing research based master's and doctoral degrees.
Fallin's NSF proposal outlined a vertical approach to multicore systems and discussed the interaction between hardware and software - from compilers and systems software down to microarchitecture. In it he addressed the reliability and performance problems that will most likely attack future parallel and multicore systems. This fall he will be studying electrical and computer engineering as part of the Computer Architecture Lab at Carnegie Mellon University. A native of Beaverton, Ore., his project adviser was Patrick Flynn, professor of computer science and engineering.
