Honors student James Dahlman (junior, biomedical engineering) received a 2008 Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship, awarded nationally to outstanding undergraduate science students who are active researchers. Since 2006, James has been conducting research under the direction of Dr. Daniel Miracle at the Air Force Research Laboratory Materials and Manufacturing Directorate. James plans to pursue a Ph. D in Materials Engineering so he can conduct research in medical materials and teach at the university level.
James is the fifth student from Wright State to receive a Goldwater Scholarship, awarded by the Goldwater Foundation, a federally endowed agency established by Congress in 1986 to honor the memory of Senator Barry M. Goldwater. The Goldwater Scholarship is the premier undergraduate award of its type in the fields of mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering. Congratulations, James!
