Kinkaid grad receives fellowship for nanotechnology work
Sunil Pai, a graduate of Memorial’s Kinkaid High School, earned a $25,000 fellowship from the Davidson Institute.
Pai received the fellowship for his work with nanotechnology. He created an inexpensive system to determine quantum energies of superoxide. His experiment could lead to a deeper understanding of biological and environmental processes, according to a press release.
Pai was one of 18 students to be named a Davidson Fellow. To become a fellow, one must exemplify what students can do when given the opportunity to excel.
“The Davidson Institute is built on the belief that individuals, who have extraordinary intelligence and talents, when encouraged and supported, can improve the quality of life for us all,” said Bob Davidson, co-founder of the Davidson Institute. “We are delighted to recognize a group of resourceful and distinguished young people for their fascinating projects – projects that have the potential to benefit society.”
The Davidson Institute is a nonprofit that seeks to support gifted students so they can contribute to the future economic productivity of the U.S.
