Shomik Verma, a junior at Duke University, was one of three students from Duke to be named a 2018 Barry M. Goldwater Scholar. This scholarship program was designed to foster and encourage outstanding students to pursue careers in the fields of mathematics, the natural sciences and engineering.
Shomik is studying mechanical engineering and minoring in mathematics and energy engineering. His professor, Nico Hotz, says of Shomik, "During my years of mentoring students and supervising their research, I have hardly ever seen a student as talented and hard working as Shomik."
