We are pleased to welcome the following 2019 Extreme Science Internship (ESI) students: Atiyya Davis and Michael Straker. Davis and Straker are both working with HEMI Fellow Adam Phelan (Dept. of Chemistry, Associate Director of the PARADIM Bulk Crystal Growth Facility) as their advisor.
The ESI program is a year-round, paid internship program with Morgan State University (MSU). ESI provides opportunities for MSU students to participate in both internal and external internships associated with the Center for Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments (CMEDE). ESI are STEM-focused with a particular emphasis on providing research opportunities related to MEDE, a basic research program focused on designing, developing, and testing improved soldier protection materials. The program is open to undergraduate and graduate students in MSU’s School of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences and the School of Engineering.
