For UNH mechanical engineering Ph.D. candidate Milan Ardeljan, everything matters ‒ even the tiniest particles. Ardeljan has been awarded a prestigious summer fellowship from the Seaborg Institute at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in New Mexico to develop predictive models for material behavior. At LANL, Ardeljan will examine macroscopic phenomena at micro and nano scales. “I start with the well-known facts,” he says. “Materials that are simple, in theory. I hone in closer and closer on a micro level. It is these small things that can make a big impact on a macro field.”
