Pankaj Chouhan, a Scientific Computing doctoral student, has been awarded a summer internship with Argonne National Laboratory. The internship is a virtual one – the experience will be carried out remotely with the use of the lab’s telecommuting technology and communication tools. There are no physical or on-site requirements at the lab to protect affiliates from COVID-19.

Located in Lemont, Illinois outside Chicago, Argonne was initially formed as a research location to study nuclear reactors. After World War II, the lab focused primarily on non-weapon related nuclear physics, designing and building the first power-producing nuclear reactors. Today, Argonne is a science and engineering research station, which conducts studies on energy storage, renewable energy, environmental sustainability, supercomputing and national security.

Chouhan’s internship spans from June 1st – August 25th.
