Launching a Lifetime of Discovery

*
In 2007, Kinsley French arrived at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as a freshman from Cherry Plain, N.Y., with an interest in science and research. On Commencement day, she will receive a doctoral degree in biology. In intervening years, she has racked up a slew of accomplishments - earning the J. Erik Jonsson Prize for the highest undergraduate academic record in the Class of 2011 and the Rensselaer Founders Award of Excellence, receiving a bachelor's degree in mathematics and biology, and being honored with a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. She is the co-author of four publications in peer-reviewed academic journals.

"I chose to enroll at Rensselaer due to its fantastic science education program, research, and great reputation," said French. "Rensselaer has given me the opportunity to pursue research in a field that I am very passionate about."

A Computer Science Degree, a Start-Up Business, and the Skills To Make It Happen

*

David Vorick is leaving Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with more than a degree in computer science; he's also taking with him a fledgling cryptocurrency and cloud storage business, and the entrepreneurial skills he and his co-founder learned at Rensselaer. The business is Sia, a decentralized cloud storage solution, and after graduation, Vorick and co-founder Luke Champine are moving their shop across the country to Silicon Valley.

"The highest concentration of software developers and cryptocurrency enthusiasts, as well as technology early adopters, is in Silicon Valley, which is why we've decided to move there," said Vorick, a native of Palatine, Illinois. "We believe that our product is cheaper, faster, and more secure than existing alternatives, which is why we're willing to give up comfy jobs and start a company."
