5 NSF Graduate Research Fellowships awarded to UH students, alumna
Date:4/20/2012

HOUSTON, April 19, 2012 From cognitive neuroscience to theoretical physics, this year's National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellows from the University of Houston (UH) have their sights set on careers in fields ranging from medicine to energy.

Recognizing outstanding students pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines, the three-year fellowships cover tuition and include a $30,000 annual stipend. This year's group is looking forward to obtaining advanced degrees from UH, Harvard, MIT, the University of Waterloo in Canada and the University of Michigan. The five awardees are:

  • Thomas Markovich is a senior physics and mathematics double major and member of the Honors College. Researching under the guidance of chemistry professor Donald Kouri for several years, Markovich participated in the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program in 2009 and the Provost's Undergraduate Research Scholarship (PURS) program in fall 2010, as well as completed a senior honors thesis in 2011. He also won the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship in 2011 and the Undergraduate Hyer Award in 2010. He supplements his research in physics with work in the fields of anthropology and art history, assisting a team led by research assistant professor Daniel Price that investigates a collection of pre-Mayan masks using signal processing. Markovich will begin pursuing a Ph.D. in physics at Harvard in the fall and ultimately would like to conduct research in quantum information and spintronics at the university and industrial levels.

  • Darren Seibert is a biomedical engineering major and also a member of the Honors College. He is working toward understanding the neural computations underlying visual perception. He has had the opportunity to collaborate on projects that use functional magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI, with Michael Tarr's lab
