Four first-year Caltech graduate students from the Division of Engineering and Applied Science are among 26 who have been named as recipients of a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF), which the DOE provides to future leaders in the field of high-performance computing (HPC).

The fellowship provides an annual stipend, payment of university tuition and fees, and an annual academic allowance for up to four years. It also includes a three-month research practicum at one of 21 DOE sites. Only about 5 percent of applicants were chosen this year.

The new fellows from Caltech are:

Alexandra Baumgart, a student in mechanical engineering who earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign;

Emily de Jong, a student in mechanical engineering who earned a bachelor’s degree in chemical and biological engineering from Princeton University;

Ethan Epperly, a student in applied and computational mathematics who earned bachelor’s degrees in mathematics and computing from UC Santa Barbara;

Margaret Trautner, a student in applied and computational mathematics who earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from MIT.

The program was launched in 1991 and has sponsored more than 500 applicants at more than 65 universities. The program includes a track for those pursuing an advanced degree in applied mathematics, statistics, or computer science with research interests that help use emerging HPC systems more effectively.
