Tyler Confrey-Malony NCSU Kalypso Wolfpack Innovators Scholarship Recipient

13 Oct


In 2011, a group of North Carolina State University alums at the innovation consulting firm, Kalypso, decided to turn their shared interests into an opportunity to award scholarships to NC State students who exemplify Kalypso’s values and passion for innovation.

This year, the tradition continues with the recognition of Tyler Confrey-Malony.

Tyler is a junior Materials Science and Engineering major at NC State currently researching programmable DNA self-assembly techniques for novel applications in nano-electronics and nano-medicine. But luckily for us, Tyler took some time away from being a super scientist to share about himself and what this scholarship means to him.

The Kalypso Wolfpack Innovation Scholarship is a fantastic opportunity for college students to expand their horizons,” said Tyler. “Personally, this scholarship will provide the funding I needed to continue my research on biopolymers and their application to medicine and microelectronics. I am honored to receive this recognition, and I am excited about the upcoming year!”

When we asked Tyler what animal he would like to come back as if he died he answered a humpback whale: “…you get to be one of the largest creatures on the planet and eat for 22 hours a day? Sounds like a plan to me!”

We hope that Tyler continues to bring the playful spirit into everything he does and wish him the best of luck on the rest of his year.

Congratulations again, Tyler!
