Two Students Named Goldwater Scholars
Andrew Black ’11 and Andrew K. Capulli ’11 were selected as 2010 Goldwater Scholars by the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation. The Goldwater Scholarship program fosters and encourages outstanding students to pursue careers in the fields of mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering, and is the premier undergraduate award of its type in these fields. Since 2002, 16 WPI students have been named Goldwater Scholars or honorable mention recipients.
Black, a native of Bridgewater, Mass., is a chemical engineering major and chemistry minor who plans to pursue a PhD and conduct research on fuel cells, chemical thermodynamics, and catalysis and to teach in academia.
Capulli, a bioengineering major from Hampstead, N.H., plans to pursue a PhD and perform research on regenerative implants, prostheses, and the biomechanics of tissues in either an academic or industrial setting.
