England Calling

From a pool of more than 1,000 applicants, two MIT students were selected as winners of this year’s Marshall Scholarships, which fund U.S. graduate students’ study in the United Kingdom. Doctoral candidate Samidh Chakrabarti ‘02 and David Foxe ‘03 will use their scholarships beginning this fall.

Chakrabarti earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering and computer science and a second bachelor’s degree in brain and cognitive sciences last year. Now a PhD candidate in artificial intelligence, Chakrabarti will take a break from his MIT studies to attend the University of Oxford, where he’ll study the history of science. “Ultimately, I want to be a science policy advisor,” he says. “I hope my career will afford me the opportunity to champion science education programs.”

Foxe, a double major in music and architecture, will study at the University of Cambridge with the goal of becoming a licensed architect. “With architecture,” Foxe says, “one learns so much by simply being able to experience a new environment.” An accomplished photographer, Foxe has displayed his architectural photos in the Rotch Library, and his designs and musical compositions are archived at the MIT Museum, where they have been exhibited.
