ECE student ties for first at Denman Undergraduate Research Forum

Posted: May 19, 2010

Dominic Labanowski, a second-year student in electrical and computer engineering, tied for first place in  Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the 2010 Denman Undergraduate Research Forum. Labanowski’s project is titled Diffusion of Spins in a Strongly Spatially Varying Local Magnetic Field. Chris Hammel, professor of physics, is Labanowski’s adviser.

“Participating in research has given me much more insight into the topics that I cover in my classes by allowing me to get a second look at the material from a totally different perspective.” Labanowski said. “It really has been an excellent experience and I would recommend it to anyone who has developed an acute interest in a specific topic that they have been exposed to as an undergraduate.”

The Denman Undergraduate Research Forum, created in 1996, showcases outstanding student research and encourages all undergraduates to participate in research as a value-added element of their education. The Denman Forum is a cooperative effort of The Ohio State University's Honors & Scholars Center, The Undergraduate Research Office, and The Office of Research.

The 16th annual Denman Forum is scheduled for Wednesday, May 11, 2011 in the Recreation Physical and Activity Center (RPAC). Visit the Denman Undergraduate Research Forum’s website for more information.
