Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Student Daniel Charytonowics (pictured middle) is one of three University of Delaware students to be named a 2014 Goldwater Scholar.
“Charytonowicz, an Honors Program student who is from Wantagh, N.Y., plans to earn both an M.D. and a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering so that he can conduct research to expand the clinical capabilities of medical diagnostics technology.
Charytonowicz, whose research is advised by James Hoffman, professor in the Department of Psychology, is conducting a study to understand the cognitive mechanisms of visual attention — in other words, how our brain collects, sorts, and processes visual information. ”
