Gennifer Riley, doctoral candidate in mechanical engineering, has been announced as a recipient of the Marie R. Bonebrake Graduate Award, a legacy scholarship established by Case Bonebrake in honor of his wife and K-State alumnus, Marie.

One-half of the $4,200 award will be disbursed for fall 2020 and the remaining half in the 2021 spring semester.

Riley's research focus, under the direction of Melanie Derby, associate professor in the Alan Levin Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering, is on the development of more compact heat transfer systems for space applications by utilizing wicking structures.
