Lab member Mingyu Hu will visit the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD for the summer of 2019 to intern with Dr. Mike Donahue. Mingyu aims to develop micromagnetic software for antiferromagnetic materials that is comparable to OOMMF. As noted on the NSF MSGI website:
The National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) aims to provide opportunities to enrich the training of graduate students in the Mathematical Sciences through the provision of an NSF Mathematical Sciences Graduate Internship Program. This program will provide an opportunity for mathematical sciences doctoral students to participate in internships at federal national laboratories, industry and other approved facilities. Participation in an internship will provide first-hand experience of the use of mathematics in a nonacademic setting. The internships are aimed at students who are interested in understanding the application of advanced mathematical and statistical techniques to "real world" problems, regardless of whether the student plans to pursue an academic or nonacademic career.
This is a competitively funded internship program. Congratulations Mingyu!
