Recent ARCS Events

Louis Lamit - NAU ARCS/Windrow Endowment Scholar

Louis received his B.S. in Biology at the University of Montana and his M.S. in Biology at Northern Arizona University. His research examines the endophytic fungi associated with the bark of cottonwood trees. He is investigating the positive effect that endophytes have on tree growth and documenting rare endophytes species that have not been described. Understanding how these fungi interact with cottonwoods will have important implicatons for agriculture and forestry practices. 

Derek Caselli - ASU Wilhoit Scholar

Derek received his B.S. in Physics and his M.S. in Solid State Electronics from Arizona State University. His research study is to develop, design, fabricate and test a new type of high efficiency solar cell utilizing semiconductor alloy nanowires.  This new type of high efficiency solar cell could potentially offer a path to less expensive solar energy.
