Jingkang Gao, Class of 2013, is an Inaugural Recipient of the Lewis Fund for Innovation in Energy and the Environment
Jingkang Gao, Class of 2013, was recently awarded a Peter B. Lewis Fund for Innovation in Energy and the Environment summer internship. The Andlinger Center administers this fund. This competitive funding supports undergraduate research on energy-related projects, particularly for field work and laboratory research.
Jingkang will spend eight weeks this summer working under the guidance of Professors James Smith and Elie Bou-Zeid. His abstract below describes how his research topic is aimed at providing practical solutions for energy-related challenges.
Abstract: The Sensor Network over Princeton (SNOP) project utilizes a distributed sensor network to collect data to contribute to the Princeton Sustainability Initiative in the fields of energy, water, and carbon. The project entails establishing a wireless sensor network over campus and building innovative trace-gas sensors that will be integrated into the network.
HIs proposal was chosen for its promising research goals and as an excellent representation of a topic that the Andlinger Center seeks to encourage and promote.
Congratulations to Jingkang!
