Chelsea Diestelkamp was always willing to lend a helping hand, so in hindsight it’s easy to see why she became a teacher.
By combining computational mathematics and several engineering disciplines, a Missouri University of Science and Technology researcher hopes to consistently predict the underground flow of water through porous terrain with large fractures, channels or conduits.
When he wasn’t studying for his own classes, Juan Remolina, a 2016 Missouri S&T graduate in economics, mathematics and physics, spent much of his academic career at S&T mentoring others. Instead of sleeping in, he got up early to open the Burns and McDonnell Student Success Center or the student ID office. Twelve-hour days on campus were the norm for Remolina, who plans to start work on a graduate degree in astrophysics at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor this coming fall. [Read more…]
