Students given notable engineering scholarship 
eMily donoVan
wo Jayhawks have beenawarded one o the nation’s mostprestigious merit-based, under-graduate scholarships in the sci-ences. Qi Chen, a junior study-ing chemical engineering romOverland Park, and Lianna Dang,a junior studying chemistry romShawnee, have both received theBarry M. Goldwater Scholarshipater a rigorous application pro-cess and intense national com-petition.“his scholarship is mostly toencourage people to go to gradschool and pursue a researchcareer,” Chen said.One o his reshman orienta-tion seminars was led by Dr. KyleCamarda, an associate proessorand associate dean at the Schoolo Engineering, who mentionedChen’s computational chemicalengineering research at the endo the presentation. he projectstarted when Chen walked up toCamarda and asked i he had any open space in his lab.“he project I’m workingon right now is quantum leveldescriptors and computationalmolecular design,” Chen said. “Ilook at a molecule, look at whatother charges are on a moleculeand, rom that, compare it withother molecules to igure outhow well they’ll play together —what kind o interactions they’llhave.”Based on those interactions,Chen’s research can determinehow a molecule will react in achemical reaction or in a mix-ture, allowing speciic moleculesto be designed to act in a speciicway.“he irst year, I would show up to group meetings and every-thing would ly over my head,”Chen said. “But ater you go to aew meetings, you start catchingon to things.”Ater spending last summerin Denmark collaborating onthe project, Chen presented theresearch at this year’s AmericanInstitute o Chemical Engineers’annual meeting in Pittsburgh.Outside o the research lab, Chenorganized this year’s EngineeringExpo, is involved with the Sel Engineering Leadership Fellows(SELF) Program and plans tospend this summer working asan intern with ExxonMobil.“he biggest part o the appli-cation was talking about yourexperience in research and why you are a scientist,” Dang said.Dang sent out emails, attend-ed meetings and entered theresearch lab in her sophomoreyear ater Chen persuaded herto get involved with on-cam-pus research. Having started o making nanoparticles, she now works to make industrial cata-lysts, which convert the letoversrom plant eedstock like cornhusks or vegetable oil into sell-able byproducts.“A big ocus o my researchis renewable and sustainableenergy,” Dang said. “We’re mak-ing the biodiesel process moresustainable and more energy-eicient by using the byproductsto make valuable chemicals.”he Journal o the AmericanChemical Society published anarticle covering Dang’s catalystsearlier this year. Dang is also thetreasurer o her scholarship hall’sexecutive board and involvedwith the Chemistry Club, takingchemistry demonstrations out toelementary schools to get kidsexcited about slime and thingsthat blow up or are gross totouch.he two have been datingsince meeting up to take a walk around campus on move-in day their reshman year. A mutualriend, sophomore Mike Marcus,hassled Dang into approach-ing Chen ater he had met herthrough the Science Olympiadat Shawnee Mission NorthwestHigh School, and knew Chenthrough collaboration withShawnee Mission East HighSchool’s Robotics Cvlub.“Lianna’s mom still owes me ahome-cooked Chinese gourmetmeal because she’s so happy thatI set the two o them up,” Marcussaid. “I consider that the mostsuccessul relationship that I’veever been involved with.”he scholarship will be appliedto Chen and Dang’s senior years.

HELENA, Mont. — A Montanaederal judge will retire ollowingan investigation into an email heorwarded that included a racist joke involving President Barack Obama.U.S. District Judge RichardCebull had previously announcedhe would step down as chie cir-cuit judge and take a reducedcaseload, but he inormed the 9thU.S. Circuit Court o Appeals thathe now intends to ully retire May 3.he appellate court posted astatement by Chie Judge AlexKozinski on its website uesday announcing Cebull had submittedthe retirement letter.he March 29 letter comesater the appellate court’s JudicialCouncil issued a March 15 orderon the investigation into theFebruary 2012 email, but appellatecourt spokesman David Maddencould not say whether Cebullresigned because o the order.“he misconduct processis conidential. I am not privy to what the order said nor do Iknow what Judge Cebull’s moti- vations were,” Madden said in aWednesday email.he council’s order will remainconidential during an appealperiod, which concludes May 17,Madden said. he council willmake an announcement aterCebull’s retirement takes eect,he said, but added that he wasunable to answer when the orderor the letter will be released to thepublic.A Cebull aide directed calls orcomment to Clerk o Court ylerGilman, who said Wednesday thatCebull would not have any com-ment other than the court’s state-ment.He declined to release the res-ignation letter or describe whatit said.Cebull wrote a letter o apology to Obama and iled a complaintagainst himsel ater he GreatFalls ribune published the con-tents o the email, which includeda joke about bestiality and thepresident’s mother.he Billings judge orwardedthe email rom his chambers to sixother people on Feb. 20, 2012, thenewspaper reported.wo other groups also demand-ed an investigation, with one, theMontana Human Rights Network,starting an online petition callingor Cebull’s resignation.Kim Abbott, the network’s co-director, said Wednesday she waspleased with the announcementbut hopes to see the results o theinvestigation.“he email really called intoquestion his ability to treatwomen and people o color airly,so we’re happy Montanans will getto appear beore a dierent judge,”Abbott said.he complaints were reerredto a special committee appointedby the appellate court to investi-gate whether Cebull’s email con-stituted misconduct.
