Henry M. Jackson High School junior Sriharshita Musunuri has won a $50,000 Davidson Fellows Scholarship. It is the top award honored by the Davidson Institute to young people who have completed a significant piece of work in a variety of categories, from philosophy to technology. Musunuri was honored in science.
Musunuri, 16, who goes by Harshu, was selected for her development of a cost-effective thermoelectric device that has the potential to enable generation of electricity from industrial waste heat. The formal title of her project, completed mostly over her freshman year, is “Application of Tetrahedrite and Magnesium Silicide in a Novel Thermoelectric Unicouple to Generate Electricity from Industrial Waste Heat.”
The achievement follows a string of honors in science and technology for Musunuri, for this project and other research work. For Musunuri, becoming a Davidson Fellow “represents acceptance to the larger scientific community.”
