Published in MIT Campus News on Feb 9, 2012

Seniors Joshua Cohen and Allison Hinckley have been named Gates Cambridge Scholars for 2012.

Cohen, who is double majoring in chemical engineering and biology, will travel to the University of Cambridge to undertake an MPhil in computational biology. He then plans to enter an MD/PhD program in the United States with the eventual goal of a career in the field of tissue engineering...

Hinckley, a chemical engineering major, will pursue an MPhil in nanotechnology in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy at Cambridge. She hopes to gain additional background in the chemistry of nanomaterials before pursuing a PhD in the United States in either chemical engineering or materials science. Ultimately, she hopes to develop novel nanotechnologies. She is particularly interested in investigating nanotechnology approaches to manufacturing more efficient solar cells.
