Electrical Engineering senior Luke Snow was among seven Clemson University students who have been awarded the 2021 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, a highly competitive grant aimed at building future scientific and engineering leaders.
These students were among 2,000 selected from more than 12,000 applicants nationwide who are pursuing graduate work in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Luke is an Honors College senior majoring in electrical engineering and minoring in mathematics who will pursue a Ph.D. in electrical engineering at Cornell University, where he’ll study the mathematical foundations of signal and information processing systems.
The Columbia, S.C. native participated in research in the Micro-Photonics Lab with Eric Johnson, professor of electrical and computer engineering, where he worked on free-space optical systems which employ the ‘orbital angular momentum’ of photons for communication and sensing in turbulent environments.
Snow received the 2020-2021 W.M. Riggs award for “Most Outstanding Senior in Electrical Engineering.”
