In 2012 Jude (HMC '65) and Eileen Laspa endowed our research fellowship. In addition to NSF support, the fellowship provides resources for additional international student research experience and travel to conferences.
The Jude and Eileen Laspa Fellowship Program in Applied Mechanics provides students at Harvey Mudd College with an opportunity to pursue mechanics-focused research problems that come from a range of multidisciplinary applications, building on the unique general engineering program at Harvey Mudd. The program focuses on developing analytical and computational skills and methods that can be applied to maximize the impact of experiments.
Why is our site keets.org? Rainbow lorikeets are abundant in Sydney (and across Australia). The group is led by Prof. Lori Bassman, and the students are the (lori)keets! Lorikeets are not the only relevant Australian wildlife.
