Clancy group UG researcher, Jovana Andrejevic, wins NSF Grad Fellowship
Applied and Engineering Physics senior undergraduate, Jovana Andrejevic, has been awarded a prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Jovana has been working in the Clancy group in CBE for the past two years, creating a new approach to modeling chemically reactive species for quantum dot nucleation and growth, mentored by Clancy PhD student, James Stevenson. Jovana's work resulted in a first-author publication in J. Chem. Theor. & Computation in 2016. She is active at Cornell as a physics tutor, as an outreach coordinator for SWE, and manages part of Cornell's Community Center program. She is the winner of several Cornell awards, including the Rhodes Scholarship and a Cornell Engineering Alumni Association award. The NSF graduate fellowship is awarded to just ~2,000 outstanding students out of ~17,000 applicants across all STEM fields. Jovana will be attending graduate school in Fall 2016.
