Travis Sawyer was awarded the $10,000 John Kiel Scholarship. After recently submitting his MPhil thesis, Travis will begin a PhD in optical sciences at the University of Arizona (USA) in the fall, collaborating with the VISIONLab at the University of Cambridge conducting research into developing a multimodal imaging system for tissue analysis. The John Kiel Scholarship honors SPIE founding member John Kiel, who died in 2014. The scholarship is awarded for a student’s potential for long-term contributions in the field of optics and optical engineering.
This is a very prestigious award, well done Travis!
