Travis Sawyer was awarded the $10,000 John Kiel Scholarship. After recently submitting his MPhil thesis in the group of Sarah Bohndiek, Travis will begin a PhD in optical sciences at the University of Arizona (USA) in the Autumn, collaborating with the Bohndiek lab conducting research into developing a multimodal imaging system for tissue analysis. The John Kiel Scholarship honors SPIE founding member John Kiel, who died in 2014. The scholarship is awarded for a student’s potential for long-term contributions in the field of optics and optical engineering.

This is a very prestigious award, well done Travis!
