Jack Knoll                        

Power has always been an interest of Jack Knoll’s. Growing up, his mother worked for Ameren Electric in St. Louis, and by the time he reached college he knew he wanted to develop renewable sources of power.

Knoll, a second-year electrical engineering student, was recently awarded the IEEE Power & Energy Scholarship (PES). He credits Mark Scott, assistant professor in the electrical and computer engineering department, with helping him through the process. Knoll also did undergraduate research with Scott during the Fall of 2016.

In addition to power, his other passion is service. He strives to give back for all of the good things that he has been given in his life. He is a member of Habitat for Humanity and Alpha Phi Omega, a service fraternity at Miami.
