Materials science PhD student receives Goldstein Scholar Award

John Mangum, a PhD candidate in materials science, has been awarded the Goldstein Scholar Award, which will help fund his travel to North Carolina State University to study Ti valence states at atomic scale using electron energy-loss spectroscopy.

The award, sponsored by the Meteoritical Society and Springer, seeks to promote career advancement for early career members of the Microanalysis Society, increase interactions of junior and established microanalysts, and advance microanalysis measurements.

Mangum is advised by Brian Gorman, associate professor of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, and is a member of the Colorado Center for Advanced Ceramics.
