MTU Class of 2024 Celebrates Spring Commencement

Spring Commencement graduate student speaker Zazil Santizo- Huerta and undergraduate student speaker Vincent Barfield, left, share a moment under the new Alumni Gateway Arch, which will be dedicated on Friday, April 26, along with a ribbon-cutting for the University’s new H-STEM Engineering and Health Technologies Complex.

Three Huskies who achieved success through unwavering persistence and mathematical prowess will address members of the Class of 2024 at Michigan Tech’s Spring Commencement ceremonies Friday and Saturday (April 26 and 27).

Entrepreneur and philanthropist Chang K. Park ’73 (B.S. Electrical Engineering/Engineering Administration) is the featured commencement speaker at both ceremonies. Zazil Santizo-Huerta, who earned her Ph.D. in Mathematical Sciences, will address her fellow graduate students Friday. Vincent Barfield, completing his bachelor's with dual majors in mathematics and computer science, will deliver the undergraduate address.

More than 1,000 Huskies in the spring Class of 2024 will celebrate a hard-earned and long-awaited milestone. Graduate student commencement is at 3 p.m. Friday. Undergraduate commencement is at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. Both take place in the John J. MacInnes Student Ice Arena.

GLAS Summer Track A Schedule Now Available

Do you know of current or incoming international students who wish to practice their English conversation skills during the summer? If so, the GLAS Track A schedule is now available. Students may sign up for a weekly recurring online appointment by visiting the GLAS webpage.

Graduate Language Assessment and Support (GLAS) is a free program designed for international graduate students who wish to improve their English oral communication skills.

Through small-group conversations that matter, students gain experience participating in class discussions, responding to questions and listening effectively. GLAS coaches work with students to help them better understand U.S. university expectations and gain insight into what students and instructors expect from each other in classrooms. GLAS students who are already teaching can practice lectures or lab presentations with their coach.

All international students and scholars are welcome to attend and participate in the program.

MS Defense: Sunday Joseph, GMES

Editor's Note: Joseph's defense was originally scheduled for 9 a.m. April 25. It has been rescheduled for April 26 at 10 a.m.

M.S. in Geophysics candidate Sunday Joseph will present his M.S. defense at 10 a.m. Friday (April 26) in Dow 610. Virtual attendance is also invited via Zoom. All are welcome to attend.

Joseph is advised by Snehamoy Chatterjee. Luke Bowman and Chad Deering are serving as committee members.

Joseph's defense is titled "Anomaly mapping of Rare Earth Elements in Central Upper Peninsula of Michigan using fractal analysis."

From the abstract:
Rare earth elements (REEs) have gained significant global importance due to their critical role in supporting the transition towards reduced carbon emissions through industrial applications. REEs serve as essential raw materials for various critical components in modern infrastructure, defense systems, and technological advancements. Geochemical and geophysical data are pivotal in assessing the potential of REEs. Geochemical data provide direct insights into the elemental composition of rocks and soils, offering valuable information on the potential presence and dispersion of REEs. However, the complex geological processes that influence the distribution of REEs often exhibit intricate spatial patterns that may not be fully captured by geochemical data alone. Geophysical data, such as gravity and magnetic data, offer indirect but complementary insights into subsurface geological structures and mineral potential. The integration of geochemical, gravity, and magnetic data can aid in identifying exploration targets with increased confidence levels. While each data source individually provides valuable information, their combination allows for the identification of areas where multiple anomalies coincide, indicating a higher likelihood of mineralization. This approach helps reduce exploration uncertainties by prioritizing targets that exhibit consistent characteristics across various datasets, thereby enhancing the chances of discovering economically viable REE reserves.

This study aims to investigate the geochemical anomalies of REEs in Central Upper Michigan by employing geostatistics and fractal analysis to integrate geochemical, gravity, and magnetic data to quantify and map REE anomalies. Both the heavy and light REEs (HREEs and LREEs) were mapped, integrating with gravity and magnetic data using a multivariate geostatistical method called cokriging. Cokriging utilized the spatial correlation and cross-correlation among these data types to provide more insightful predictions compared to solely relying on the geochemical dataset. Fractal modeling, which has proven to be a powerful tool in geological mapping for anomalous deposits, was utilized in this study. By leveraging the fractal characteristics of mineral deposit dispersion and the related geochemical trends, this approach was able to identify potential exploration zones. The concentration-Area (C-A) log-log plots of the HREEs and LREEs were generated, and their thresholds were subsequently identified using the segmented linear method. The fundamental premise of C-A fractal modeling is based on the observation that mineralization processes frequently result in patterns of element concentrations that exhibit fractal characteristics. These patterns can be analyzed to distinguish between the baseline (typical levels found in the earth's crust) and anomalies (elevated concentrations indicative of mineral deposits). Results from this study clearly show the anomaly distributions of both the HREEs and LREEs across the study area. Combining geochemical information with additional datasets results in a more thorough comprehension of subsurface circumstances, which is essential for precise anomaly mapping. The collaboration of these datasets enables a strong analysis, ultimately leading to a more dependable identification of possible mineral deposits and geological characteristics.

Sam Lange Named GLIAC Track Athlete of the Week

Michigan Tech track and field's Sam Lange has been named the GLIAC Track Athlete of the Week. It is the first time in Lange's career at Tech that he has received the honor.

Lange continued his unbeaten season with a season's-best time in the 1,500-meters at the Phil Esten Challenge on Saturday (April 20), clocking an NCAA provisional qualifying time of 3:48.38. The win marked his fourth victory of the outdoor campaign.

Lange and the rest of the GLIAC roster will compete in the GLIAC Outdoor Track & Field Championships hosted by Grand Valley State on May 1-3.

Track & Field Sets 14 New Personal Bests at Phil Esten Challenge

The Michigan Tech track and field team claimed 14 personal-best marks in their regular-season finale at the Phil Esten Challenge hosted by UW-La Crosse on Saturday (April 20).

Sam Lange won his fourth race of the season, finishing first in the 1,500-meters in 3:48.38 and hitting the provisional standard with a new season-best time. Donavan Mattson was also victorious for the Huskies, winning the 5,000m and lowering his personal record (PR), knocking off more than six seconds from his previous best time, set just a week ago.

"The strength of our men's 5K squad was on display today with how densely they packed up at the front of that field," head coach Robert Young said. "Donavan Mattson continued his ascent at that distance with another nice PR while Colman Lenci came oh-so-close to his first sub-15 clocking."

"Our highlights of the meet were definitely the performances by Reilly Lovercheck and Ryan Schwiderson," graduate assistant coach Luke Moore mentioned. "Reilly had a massive PR in the 400m hurdles — it was great to see her make a huge step towards her season goals. Ryan and I worked on block technique this week and it paid off in the 100m final. He stunned the field with a second-place finish and was the lone competitor to run faster in the final than the prelims."
