Maria De Gador Canton and Alejandro Hevia were recently awarded R.B. Woolley Graduate Fellowships in Engineering in recognition of their leadership at the Jacobs School. Canton has conducted stellar research in biofluidmechanics, received the 2002 "Best Teaching Assistant Award in Mechanical Engineering," and serves as a mentor and role model for women engineering students - all while maintaining a 3.9 GPA. Hevia, a Ph.D. candidate in computer science, has received top marks in each of his graduate courses, published three papers on cryptography, and was instrumental in implementing a teacher assistant training program in his role as master TA for the Computer Science and Engineering Department.
