Julia Goyer Receives VSGC Undergraduate STEM Research Scholarship

Julia Goyer is one of the recipients of the prestigious Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) Undergraduate STEM Research  Scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year. The VSGC Undergraduate STEM Research Scholarship Program provides scholarships to rising juniors and seniors in STEM fields who have a specific faculty-mentored research project that has NASA or aerospace relevance. Julia, advised by Dr. Carolina Tallon, is studying how interparticle forces and colloidal chemistry mechanisms for ultra-high-temperature ceramics can be used to enable new near-net-shaping manufacturing approaches for aerospace components. Her research aligns with NASA's Space Technology mission directorate through applications such as re-entry and hypersonic vehicles.
