Mark Nail, a junior in mechanical engineering, was one of two Nebraska students chosen to receive honorable mention recognition for the Goldwater Scholarship. Nail has researched drones with Sebastian Elbaum, Bessey Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, and Carrick Detweiler, associate professor of computer science and engineering. That research has focused on depositing sensors underground using an unmanned aerial vehicle. Nail plans to pursue a doctorate in mechanical engineering and conduct research in robotics at a corporate or university laboratory.
