Carl Fauver is one of two students from the U and of the 21 students selected nationally for the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Dynamics Summer School (LADSS). He will be partnered with a LANL staff member as a mentor for an intense nine-week research activity on a three-person multidisciplinary team.
Fauver is a double major with his second major in applied mathematics, and is advised by mechanical engineering assistant professor Steven Naleway in the Bioinspired Lab. From Salt Lake, Fauver graduated valedictorian from West Jordan High. Here in ME, his research involves using magnetic fields to control the manufacturing of porous ceramic materials in freeze casting. For the future, he is interested in researching clean water solutions, material synthesis, and machine learning.
