Ryo Namba

2013 Ryo Namba

Ryo Namba is originally from Okayama, Japan. His advisor is Prof. Marco Peloso. His research focus is theoretical particle cosmology, specifically particle interactions during inflation, and their observational signatures on the fluctuations of cosmic microwave background and large-scale structure and on stochastic gravitational waves. Ryo plans to use the award money to fund his research and to write his Ph.D. thesis over the summer.

Yeonbae Lee

2013 Yeonbae Lee

Yeonbae Lee is originally from South Korea. Under Prof. Allen Goldman's supervision, he studies superconductor-insulator transition driven by carrier density modulation, adapting field effect transistor scheme. Yeonbae uses a new exotic material called " Ionic Liquid", with which higher charge carrier transfer is possible, compared to the conventional metal-oxide field effect transistor. “I would like to thank Dr. Rahman for this honorable opportunity and award. I plan to use the award to visit my family in Korea after graduation this summer."

Chaoyun Bao

2013 Chaoyun Bao

Chaoyun Bao is originally from Hefei, China. The focus of her research is cosmic microwave background polarization Her advisor is Professor Shaul Hanany. Chaoyun plans to use the award to help fund future conference/workshop travels.

Meng-ru Wu

2012 Meng-ru Wu

Meng-ru Wu studies theoretical nuclear physics under Yong-Zhong Qian. His research focuses on how neutrinos evolve their flavors on the way out from the core of supernovae and the related physical consequences. He plans to use the award to buy a laptop or attend some physics conferences. He is originally from Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

J. J. Nelson

2012 J. J. Nelson

J.J. Nelson won a 2012 outstanding T.A. Award. Nelson studies thermomagnetic measurements of the superconductor to insulator transition with his advisor Allen Goldman. He is originally from Sturgeon Bay, WI. He plans to put the award money into savings.

Lee Wienkes

2012 Lee Wienkes

Lee Wienkes won the 2012 Aneesur Rahman Award. His research focuses on electron transport in nanostructured thin films and his advisor is James Kakalios. He plans to use the money for a laptop. He is originally from Sparta, Wisconsin. He did his undergraduate degree at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

Anthony Hatke

2011 Anthony Hatke

Anthony Hatke received a 2011 Aneesur Rahman Award. He is originally from La Crosse, Wisconsin. Anthony's advisor is Michael Zudov in the area of nonequilibrium magnetotransport in high mobility structures.
He plans to use his award for computing power and moving expenses.

LiDong Pan

2011 LiDong Pan

LiDong Pan has won the 2011 Aneesur Rahman Award. He is originally from Shanghai, China. He did research with Prof. C. C. Huang in soft condensed matter, specialized in the study of phase transitions in liquid crystal materials.

2010 Mun Chan

Mun Chan won the Aneesur Rahman Award. Originally from Malaysia, his main research interest as a graduate student centered on understanding electron spin dynamics and transport in ferromagnet-semiconductor devices. He is also interested in the effects of the hyperfine interaction on the electron spins. Currently, Mun is studying magnetic excitations in high temperature superconductors using neutron scattering. He plans to use his award for more computing power.


2009 Todd Springer

Todd Springer won the Aneesur Rahman Award. He is a student in high energy theory, nuclear physics, and cosmology. He is planning to use the money to buy new textbooks, and to help me with moving expenses. He will be pursuing a postdoctoral research position at the University of North Carolina this fall. He was born and grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
