NEW YORK (TIP): Three Indian American Students are among 26 recipients nationwide of a Department of Energy Computation Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF). They are Priya Donti from Carnegie Mellon University, and Dipti Jasrasaria and Amaresh Sahu, both from University of California, Berkeley.
The program, established in 1991, trains top leaders in computational science. As part of the program, fellows receive exceptional benefits including a yearly stipend; full payment of university tuition and required fees (during the appointment period); and an annual academic allowance.
Donti earned her B.S. degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from Harvey Mudd College in 2015. Her work seeks to develop machine learning, optimization, and control methods for robust, emissions-minimal energy system management that are powerful enough to cope with the system’s large-scale nature.
Jasrasaria did M.Phil. Scientific Computing from University of Cambridge in 2017and B.A. Chemistry from Harvard University in 2016.
Sahu did his B.S. Chemical and Biological Engineering, from Princeton University in 2013. His research focuses on using a variety of techniques from statistical mechanics, continuum mechanics, and finite element methods to develop models that better explains cell membrane behavior.
