Grad Student Holloway Receives SURA Fellowship
ECE Ph.D. student Michael Holloway has been awarded a Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA) Jefferson Laboratory Graduate Fellowship for the 2006-07 academic year. The fellowship includes a stipend amount equal to one-half of a nine-month research assistantship plus an additional $2,000 for fellowship recipients.
Holloway is an advisee of ECE Department Chair Dr. Patrick O’Shea, and conducts research in the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP). He is also working with Dr. Ralph Fiorito of IREAP. Holloway's research, which is supported by the Joint Technology Office and the Office of Naval Research, is focused on developing better beam diagnostics for free electron lasers (FELs).
SURA, a consortium of universities in the southeastern U.S., awards up to eight fellowships each year to doctoral students at SURA member universities for research at the Jefferson Lab in Newport News, Va.
The Jefferson Lab is funded by the Office of Science for the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE). As a user facility for scientists worldwide, its primary mission is to conduct basic research of the atom's nucleus at the quark level. With industry and university partners, the Lab engages in applied research related to free-electron lasers based on technology the laboratory developed to conduct its physics experiments. Jefferson Lab is managed for the DoE by SURA.
