ECE Senior Jonathan Scott receives NDSEG Fellowship

ECE Senior Jonathan Scott has received the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship. This highly competitive graduate fellowship is for a period of up to three years, and covers full tuition, mandatory fees and a graduate stipend. The NDSEG Fellowship is sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the Army Research Office (ARO), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR) under the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (OSD) for Research and Engineering.

Jonathan's research proposal “Design of Integrated Electrical and Acoustic Thin Film Biosensor Array” is based on his Slade Scholars thesis under Prof. Yicheng Lu’s supervision. The Slade Scholars Program at Rutgers is designed specifically for outstanding undergraduate students to do research under a faculty advisor for graduate credit and to complete an honors senior thesis. Jonathan's research on this new sensing technology has promising potential as a clinical and research tool for diagnostics and monitoring of antibiotic activity and antibiotic drug resistance. Jonathan has decided to attend Princeton University to pursue his Ph.D in the area of devices and photonics.

Congratulations on this outstanding accomplishment, Jonathan!
