The University of Kentucky’s Josiah Hanna and David Spencer were recently named honorable mentions for the prestigious Goldwater scholarship. Hanna, a sophomore out of Lexington, majors in computer science and mathematics and has been researching artificial intelligence planning under uncertainty. Spencer, a junior from Paducah, is pursuing a chemical engineering degree. Spencer has been involved in research that has focused on nanoparticles and hydragels and their application in drug delivery.
In this episode of the podcast, Josh talks with both students about their research and why it’s important for young students – and Kentucky as a whole – to embrace innovative thinking.
