MICDE is proud to announce the recipients of the 2021 MICDE graduate fellowships. The fellows’ research projects involve the use and advancement of scientific computing techniques and practices. “This year, MICDE awarded fellowships in a wide array of disciplines ranging from chemistry to biostatistics and interdisciplinary mathematics to applied physics,” said Krishna Garikipati, MICDE director and professor of mechanical engineering and mathematics. “Engineering is also well represented with fellows focused on disciplines such as aerospace, biomedical, civil and environmental, climate and space, industrial and operations, materials science, mechanical, and naval architecture and marine engineering.”

For the past seven years, MICDE has awarded fellowships to over 135 graduate students from our large community of computational scientists. “I am so excited and honored to be a part of the MICDE Fellowship program. My research interest is in an interdisciplinary field between healthcare and data science. This fellowship symbolizes my core value for career development as a data scientist in healthcare,” said 2021 MICDE Fellowship recipient Hyeon Joo, Ph.D. pre-candidate in health infrastructure and learning systems and scientific computing. The MICDE graduate student top-off fellowship provides students with a stipend to use for supplies, technology, and other materials that will further their graduate education and research. Among other things, awards have helped many to travel to conferences and meetings around the world to share the rich and diverse research in computational science being carried out at U-M.
