Scott Emmons wins Goldwater Scholarship

scott_emmons-200x300A no-April-fooling congratulations to sophomore Scott Emmons, for his selection as a 2017 Goldwater Scholar!

Scott joined our networks research group in his first year, bringing substantial previous experience about community detection in networks from his high school experiences working at IU in Bloomington, Indiana. He is a Robertson Scholar and an Honors Carolina student, the Robertson piece meaning we haven’t seen as much of him recently while he’s away at Duke. But he is still active in the group, and he is part of an upcoming paper we are getting ready for submission later this Spring.

Congratulations Scott!
