Press Release 011904/137 - Recipients of the 2004 Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship

The ICDD Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship Committee has selected six recipients for the 2004 Scholarship Program. These recipients were selected, on a competitive basis, from fifty-one commendable applications received by the ICDD Scholarship Committee. The recipients are:

  • Geoffrey Kwai-Wai Kong of The University of Melbourne/St.Vincent's Institute of Medical Research, Victoria, Australia with exploration into "Crystallographic Studies of the Amyloid Precursor Protein (AAP)"
  • Chong Lim of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois, U.S.A. with research concerning "Reaction Path and Crystallography of CoSi2 Formation on Si(001) by Reactive Deposition Epitaxy"
  • Andrew Locock of University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana, U.S.A. with major interest in "Crystal Structure and Synchrotron Radiation Study of Uranyl Oxysalts of Phosphate and Arsenate - Implications for Remediation"
  • Robin T. Macaluso of Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, U.S.A. with research involving, "X-ray and Neutron Diffraction Studies for Understanding Geometrically Frustrated Systems"
  • Petra Simoncic of University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland with studies focusing on "Defect Structure of the Natural and Synthetic Zeolites Mordenite - Structure Characterization of Dye Modified, Synthetic Mordenite"
  • Kimberly Tait of University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, U.S.A. who's research is entitled "Investigations into the Stability, Morphology and the Crystal Structure of the Coexistence of Structure I and Structure II Methane-ethane Clathrate Hydrates - Occurrence and Geological Implications"

The ICDD will present each of these students with a check in the amount of $2,250 to assist in the continuation of studies in their selected fields of crystallographic research.

These scholarships are made possible through corporate and private donations. If you would like information on how you can make a donation, please contact the ICDD at 610-325-9814.
