Iwnetim Abate, a sophomore majoring in physics at MSUM, did research at the California Institute of Technology last summer. Abate worked on a device that converts Hydrogen and Hydrocarbon to energy called fuel cell.

Jan. 24 Abate won an award for being in the top three out of two hundred students from across the U.S. at the National Collegiate Research Conference hosted by Harvard University.

Abate will also give a presentation at the National Conference of Research at the University of Wisconsin and American Physical Society in Denver. Both of them will be in April.

Here is the link to the award, “People’s Choice Award” at the National Collegiate Research Conference. The other two People’s Choice Award winners were from Harvard University and UC Berkeley.
