BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Southern University System Distinguished Professor of Physics, Diola Bagayoko, has received a $71,000 federal grant to supplement a successful  research project.

The grant, from the United States Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration, is awarded to Southern to engage students in fuel cell and catalysts research.

SUBR students André Spears, physics major, and Anthony Stewart, a graduate student, were selected to participate in the Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), in Albuquerque, N.M. They are engaged in fuel cell research for 10 weeks this summer.

At SUBR, four undergraduate physics majors, Ga’Brielle Muhammad, Jarred Hayes, Vernita Adkins, and Justin Bryant, will participate in the Fuel Cell Summer Research and Training Program at the Timbuktu Academy. Bryant will begin his undergraduate studies in Physics at SUBR in the fall of 2014.

The 8-week program encompasses the study of fuel cell technologies and exposure to computations.

The Timbuktu Academy is a national model program for mentoring pre-college, undergraduate, and graduate students in science, math, engineering and technology. For more details, contact Diola Bagayoko at (225) 771-2730.
