Engineering-Douglass Living Learning Students Receive STEM Stipends

Two Rutgers Civil Engineering students were awarded STEM Summer Stipends through the Douglass Residential College.  Hannah Delos Reyes, a rising sophomore, is performing her research on the environmental impacts of hydraulic fracturing.  Rising senior Nimah Ahmed is performing her research on reactive contaminant transport modeling in porous media.  Both students are working under the direction of Dr. Nicole Fahrenfeld. 

Beyond their research experience, the program includes a variety of career development workshops and a field trip to Baltimore to visit the Lieber Institute for Brain Science, Johns Hopkins Hospital Children’s Center, and the Baltimore Underground Science Space.  Learn more about their research accomplishments at the Douglass Project Summer Research poster session Friday, September 26th, 2014 from 1-4pm in Trayes Hall of the Douglass Campus Center.
