Ohio State MAE student to receive DOE NEUP Fellowship

Ohio State mechanical engineering student Matt Bisbee has been selected to receive a 2020 Department of Energy Nuclear Energy University Program (DOE NEUP) Fellowship Award.

Bisbee’s research was advised by Dr. Raymond Cao and focused on neutron imaging. He has been working on automating neutron imaging processes.

The DOE NEUP selects 33 students to receive a graduate fellowship to students pursuing nuclear energy-related disciplines at universities across the country. The graduate fellowship includes $50,000 annually over the next three years, as well as $5,000 to go towards a summer internship.

Bisbee is from Hudson, Ohio, and has one semester left before completing his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering. He will start graduate school in Jan. 2021, where he will continue to work on neutron imaging. One he graduates he has an interest in working with advanced reactor designs.

“It means a lot to be recognized for this Fellowship,” he said. “I appreciate Dr. Cao for giving me the insight and push to apply to the DOE NUEP Fellowship which has awarded me for the hard work I have put into my undergraduate studies.”
