Madeline Van Winkle '18 recognized for her research
Chemistry major Madeline Van Winkle '18 recently was recognized for her research on nematic liquid crystals and ferromagnetic platelets.
“Last summer I participated in the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program at the Laboratory for Research on the Structure of Matter at the University of Pennsylvania,” says Van Winkle. “While there, I worked on making new materials using nematic liquid crystals and ferromagnetic platelets in Professor Arjun G. Yodh's lab.”
“I was awarded “Outstanding Presentation in Liquid Crystals” for a PowerPoint presentation I gave about my project over fall break at the Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium at Rice University in Houston, TX.”
Madeline holds the Donald B. and Thekla Reese Shackelford Endowed Scholarship, the Kenneth I. Brown Scholarship and is the first recipient of the George L. Gilbert Scholarship.
