PH.D. student Thomas Winkler awarded Ann G. Wylie Dissertation Fellowship


Bioengineering Ph.D. candidate Thomas Winkler has been awarded a semester-long Ann G. Wylie Dissertation Fellowship during the 2016-2017 academic year. The Fellowship provides support to University of Maryland doctoral candidates who have excellent qualifications and are in the latter stages of writing their dissertations. It carries a stipend and tuition award, among other benefits. Wylie Fellows are expected to devote full attention to their dissertations during the semester they receive the Fellowship.

Winkler received a Diplom in biophysics from the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria in January 2011. His thesis was on the manipulation of the carrier concentration in certain dilute magnetic semiconductors. In Fall 2011, he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to pursue his Ph.D. degree in the United States. Winkler is advised by ISR Director Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR) and is part of the MEMS Sensors and Actuators Laboratory. He is part of the MIND (MIcrosystems development for Neuropsychiatric Disorders) effort, developing a BioMEMS device utilizing biomaterial-based electrochemical sensing and impedance cytometry to enable drug treatment planning and monitoring.

The Fellowship is named for former University of Maryland Senior Vice President and Provost Ann G. Wylie.
