Three students in the ElectroMagnetic Interactions Laboratory of the Bradley Department of Electrical Engineering are being recognized for their research efforts with scholarships and awards.

Jayda Freibert, a freshman researching problems related to the visualization of complex multidimensional data, has received a one-year Bradley scholarship.

Robert Adams, a master's candidate whose research is directed toward the understanding and applications of electromagnetic scattering from ice, will receive a three-year Bradley fellowship.

David Kapp, a Ph.D. candidate who is working on developing new numerical techniques for accelerating the computation of electromagnetic scattering from rough surfaces, has received the Blackwell Award for the best seminar conducted by a graduate student in the department.

The students' research is sponsored by the U.S. Army Research Office, the Office of Naval Research, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The scholarships and awards originate from within the department. Bradley scholarships and fellowships are funded from donations made to the department by the late Marion Via of Roanoke.

The electromagnetics laboratory, under the direction of Gary S. Brown, specializes in the understanding, modeling, and application of the interaction of electromagnetic waves in the natural environment.
