Inspired by camel fur, a new two-layered material could provide extended cooling to preserve the freshness of perishable goods. As a Marshall Scholar, Swanson will study mathematics and computer science at Cambridge.

An accomplished musician, Swanson plays flute and piccolo with the MIT Symphony Orchestra where he has served as president. He will receive his MEng in computer science and engineering this spring. She has mentored local high school girls by leading physics exploration days on the MIT campus, and she helped write the MIT physics department’s first community values statement to foster a culture of respect and support. In his final semester as a midshipman, Hoffman will be the Brigade Training Officer and is tasked with creating the policies that outline training requirements for the Plebe (freshman) class. At Imperial College, Winston will embark on a PhD in aerospace materials and structures to further develop her skills in redesigning transportation systems. Category: We are fortunate that our 2019 Marshall Scholars have such exciting opportunities to look forward to, and that they will be representing the MIT community to the world.”. He is currently developing machine-learning algorithms to predict molecular properties such as toxicity or solubility, with the hope of developing a property-prediction tool that can accelerate drug discovery. Funded by the British government, the Marshall Scholarship provides outstanding young Americans with the opportunity to earn advanced degrees in any academic subject at any university in the United Kingdom. Following completion of JDO, Hoffman will report to Eglin AFB for Explosive Ordnance Disposal School. “Every year I’m impressed by how hard all of the finalists work to develop and communicate their distinctive vision for the future and their place in it.”, “MIT’s five Marshall Scholars, Radha, Katie, Anna, Kyle, and Crystal, are extraordinary; they are intelligent, creative, and dedicated to making a better world,” says MIT Chancellor Cynthia Barnhart.
