NCESR selects summer interns for 2022

Eight undergraduate students were selected as recipients of the Darrell J. Nelson Summer Undergraduate Internship in Energy Sciences Research for the Summer of 2022. The eight recipients and their supervising faculty members are Matthew Dohmen (Eric Markvicka, Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering); Bryce Herrington (Robert Streubel, Department of Physics and Astronomy); Laura Kirshenbaum (Nicole Buan, Department of Biochemistry); Aidan Larsen (Siamak Nejati, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering); Camden Olds (Xiaoshan Xu, Department of Physics and Astronomy); Jackson Taylor (George Gogos, Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering); Samantha White (Cody Stolle, Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering and Midwest Roadside Safety); and Ruthi Zielinski (Robert Streubel, Department of physics and Astronomy). The internship is named after Mr. Darrell J. Nelson, who served 41 years on the Custer County Public Power District and Nebraska Public Power (NPPD) Boards.  In 2005, Mr. Nelson proposed a partnership between NPPD and the University of Nebraska–Lincoln for engaging in energy sciences research.  The following year, the Nebraska Center for Energy Sciences Research (NCESR) was created with NPPD’s support.  At the end of the paid internship, each student will prepare a summary report that describes their experience and will prepare a poster to describe the accomplishments or results of their work experience in energy sciences research.
