Patryk Kozlowski, Aikaterini Gorou, David Jin, Anjini Chandra, and Jenny Wan were among the 409 recipients nationwide of the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation awards.These scholarships are granted annually to exceptional students focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Colleges and universities can nominate up to five students as long as one is a transfer student. For 2021, 438 academic institutions nominated a total of 1,256 students before the final 409 were selected. All five students nominated by Caltech were chosen for the award, an unusual occurrence.Caltech’s 2021–22 Goldwater Scholars have a variety of research interests. Junior Jenny Wan works with Caltech research professor of physics Jack Sayers and Sunil Golwala, professor of physics and director of the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory, on a project to measure the Hubble Constant—the rate of expansion of the universe—using X-ray and other observations of galaxy clusters.“I’m honored that I was selected for a Goldwater Scholarship and to be a part of a community of scientists who are doing remarkable work across all fields,” she says. “But even more so, I’m incredibly grateful to be at Caltech, where I have these wonderful opportunities to study the things that have fascinated me ever since I was a kid.”Katerina Gorou, a junior studying chemistry, has been working in the lab of Mitchio Okumura, professor of chemical physics, in collaboration with the lab of Yuk Yung, professor of planetary science and Jet Propulsion Laboratory senior research scientist. Gorou focuses on the atmospheric chemistry of Mars. “The motivation behind this research is to find out what exactly happened to all the water that used to be on Mars,” Gorou says.Junior Anjini Chandra is interested in the meeting point between biology and fluid mechanics. “My most recent projects, completed under Professor Lydia Bourouiba at MIT as part of the SURF [Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship] program, have involved modeling particle movement through meshes that represent cloth masks and tracking the movement and properties of sneeze clouds over time.” Another of Chandra’s interests is the use of origami in engineering. As a first-year student at Caltech, Chandra worked with Sergio Pellegrino, the Joyce and Kent Kresa Professor of Aerospace and Civil Engineering and JPL senior research scientist, to help design an origami-inspired base for a set of antenna tiles to capture signals from multiple directions.“I’m very grateful that Caltech provides plenty of opportunities, including the SURF program, for undergraduates to get involved in interdisciplinary research and that faculty are so willing to mentor undergraduate researchers,” Chandra says.Patryk Kozlowski, a junior majoring in chemistry, completed a first-year SURF project in the lab of Ryan G. Hadt, Caltech assistant professor of chemistry, where Kozlowski became interested in quantum chemical computational methods. Now, with a group led by Garnet Chan, Bren Professor of Chemistry, he is continuing his research using theoretical computational models and exploring how they can simulate chemical interactions. “Specifically, I am trying to elucidate the electronic structures of liquid electrolytes, which are key components of emerging technologies for the production and storage of clean energy,” he says.David Jin, a junior who transferred to Caltech last year to study problems at the intersection of optics and computer science, is the Institute’s transfer student Goldwater Scholar. One such problem is creating realistic-looking 3D images by simulating all the rays of light an object would reflect. Calculating each light ray requires an enormous amount of computational power, Jin explains, which is why rendering just a few frames of a Pixar movie can take thousands of computers several hours to complete. Jin’s research aims to reduce the time and computational strain by applying machine learning to the task.Jin, a junior, has spent his first year in Harbin, China, unable to physically come to Caltech because of the COVID-19 pandemic. He says he looks forward to enjoying the Southern California sunshine, working in a world-class research lab, and auditioning to be a percussionist for the orchestra when in-person campus life resumes.

COVID-19 Update: Federal Funding, Free Local Testing

By on August 4, 2020

first_imgThe Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders held a press conference to announce the kick off of the county’s COVID-19 testing program, in coordination with the Grunin Foundation, to offer free testing in densely populated municipalities. Photo courtesy Monmouth County Freeholders Murphy said that under McConnell’s plan, there would be “zero flexibility” for states to receive any additional funding amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In the first round of federal funding under the CARES Act’s coronavirus relief fund, the state received $2.4 billion. “We cannot fully support our districts in their plans for the upcoming school year without help from Washington,” said the governor. “We are staring directly at a $1 billion cut in aid to our public schools and we’ll have to further cut operating aid to our struggling colleges and universities which, by the way, have already cut by nearly $200 million,” he said.  NEW JERSEY – Gov. Phil Murphy began his Wednesday afternoon press conference with strong criticism of U.S. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell’s proposed stimulus bill, calling it “a slap in the face of every governor across the country.” By Allison Perrine Additionally, Murphy reviewed updates to the list of states on the travel advisory; anyone returning or visiting from a state on the list should self-isolate for 14 days. It now includes 31 states, up from 22 states last week. Newly added are Alaska, Delaware, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Virginia and Washington. As of Wednesday, July 22, the total cumulative number of positive COVID-19 cases statewide reached 177,645 with 13,787 total lab-confirmed deaths and 1,920 suspected related deaths. The daily positivity rate reached 2.48 percent as of July 18. “What New Jersey has gotten back is a drop in the bucket compared to our needs,” he said. “Because of the pandemic, we are undergoing a historic fiscal crisis, the likes of which has only happened twice in our state’s 244-year history,” during the Civil War and the Great Depression. Through this partnership, free COVID-19 testing is available in Asbury Park, Freehold Borough, Keansburg, Neptune, Long Branch and Red Bank. Anyone interested can simply walk up to the site and get tested; no appointment is needed. Tests will be offered six days a week and will rotate from town to town, Murphy said. More information is available at “Whether it’s in Monmouth County or your county, we have the testing capacity. The turnaround time to get your results is the challenge,” he said. “That’s a national challenge. But the capacity in this state is as good as any capacity in any state in America.” “We continue to ask everyone who has been in one of these 31 impacted states to practice self-responsibility and good citizenship, and comply with our travel advisory,” said Murphy. He encouraged everyone to get tested if they feel symptomatic or think they may have been exposed to the virus, especially with free testing now available thanks to Monmouth County government and the Grunin Foundation. At the same time, the state cannot ignore its current needs to meet “sharply increased costs” for things like emergency response, public transit, small business aid and school funding, which Murphy said is “especially critical.” In May, the governor’s office predicted having a $9.9 billion budget deficit by June 2021. Similarly, the nonpartisan Center for Budget and Policy Priorities estimates that states nationwide “are staring down a combined hole of $555 billion” by fiscal year 2022, said Murphy. He said New Jersey has already dipped into its “rainy day fund” to get through the next two months and has directed all state departments to plan for 15 percent budget cuts this fall. According to Murphy, the advisory applies to anyone traveling from a state with a positive test rate over 10 per 100,000 residents or a state with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a seven-day average.

(Feb. 5, 2015)–Longshot Ashleyluvssugar pressed the pace from his outside post position and went on to an authoritative 1 ¾ length win in Thursday’s $60,000 “You Can’t Make It Up” allowance purse at Santa Anita, as he covered 1 1/8 miles on turf in 1:47.10 under Mike Smith.Trained by Peter Eurton, the 4-year-old California-bred gelding by Game Plan pressed French-bred Sofast into and around the far turn, took a narrow advantage at the top of the lane and widened late on even money favorite Talco.Off at 8-1 in a field of eight older horses, Ashleyluvssugar paid $19.20, $5.80 and $4.00.“This was my first time on him on the turf, and he might be better on this than on synthetic,” said Smith. “I think it may be time to see if he can win a stake.”Owned by his breeders, Sharon Alesia, Bran Jam Stable and Ciaglia Racing, LLC, Ashleyluvssugar won for the first time in three tries on turf and improved his overall mark to 9-4-0-2. With the winner’s share of $46,800, he increased his earnings to $215,504.“This is the first time he’s had a chance to really show himself on turf,” said Eurton. “He needs something tight (surface-wise). He’s not a big horse. He uses all of his energy trying to get through dirt and he couldn’t do it last time out (when sixth, beaten 11 ¾ lengths on a wet fast surface Jan. 11).”French-bred Talco, who exited a close fifth place run in the Grade II Mathis Brothers Mile (turf) on Dec. 26, was next to last around the Club House turn, pulled his way into contention turning for home while five-wide, but flattened out to finish second, a nose in front of Jules Journey.Off at even money, he paid $2.60 and $2.40.Jules Journey, ridden by Santiago Gonzalez, was mid-pack after the first half mile and just missed the place. Off at 10-1, he paid $4.20 to show.There is a Pick Six carryover of $49,133 into Friday and it’s expected Friday’s total pool will exceed $300,000.
