Aniket Ingrole awarded GEOSET Award for Scholastic Achievement

HPMI Researcher Aniket Ingrole was recently presented with the 2015 GEOSET Award for Scholastic Achievement. GEOSET director Dr. Steve Acquah presented the award to Ingrole on February 27.

Ingrole’s achievements have carried past 2015. In February 2016, he took home top prize at the Regional 3-Minute Thesis Completion, beating out 40 competitors from universities throughout the region. This followed winning the FSU 3-Minute Thesis Competition in October. HPMI research Margaret Scheiner’s presentation, “Light, Innovation, and Safety: Triboluminescence, Structural Health Monitoring, and You,” earned her a spot in the final round for the FSU competition.

Ingrole's entry in the Additive Manufacturing Contest was awarded first prize at the SAMPE Conference in Baltimore in May. Aniket's entry was judged against 18 other entries from universities around the world. The primary criteria were to create a column in which the height must be at least twice its width and exhibit the best strength to weight ratio. Although two other entries supported greater weight, his entry weighed less than a third of the entry that supported the most weight. Also, Aniket's entry supported more than twice the weight of the second place entry. While Aniket won the individual completion, he acknowledged the help he had from HPMI and Bob Walsh of the NHMFL, who helped in the testing.
