When Gabe Cutter was trying to decide where he would go to college, he had some choices. He picked Clemson University because he could get the in-state tuition, play in the marching band and chart a course for graduate school.
He is well on his way.
Gabe, now a junior with a double major in computer engineering and economics, has distinguished himself as a standout student in and out of the lab.
Even before freshman year started, Gabe began conducting research under Dr. Pingshan Wang through the Eureka! program. It has turned into a multi-year project. The team is developing high-frequency sensors that electrically measure individual cells.
Gabe’s early start and hard work are paying off. He received the highly competitive Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship in 2021, and he became a published researcher in March.
Gabe and Dr. Wang joined three other Clemson researchers in co-authoring “A Systematic Method to Explore Radio-Frequency Non-Thermal Effect on the Growth of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae.” The article ran in the IEEE Journal of Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology.
