We’re very excited to announce that Lauren Zoe Baker, an undergraduate researcher with the MInDS@Mines team, has been awarded the prestigious Goldwater scholarship! Zoe has been working with our team for over a year and has shown tremendous promise. Receiving the Goldwater scholarship is further proof of her abilities and achievements.
