Barun Dhar

2012 Barun Dhar

Barun Dhar won an 2012 Outstanding T.A. Award. His research is on modeling the density distribution of stars in galaxies and dark matter in clusters of galaxies and understanding possible connections between the baryonic and dark matter content in galaxies and
clusters of galaxies. He is originally from India.

Erik Aver

2011 Erik Aver

Erik Aver won a 2011 Outstanding TA Award. His hometown is Libby, Montana He does research with Keith Olive on the primordial helium abundance, which falls under Cosmology, Big Bang Nucleosynthesis specifically. My award was in recognition of teaching assistant duties, and I plan to use it to purchase a new laptop for research.

Derek Lee

2011 Derek Lee

Derek Lee received a 2011 Outstanding TA Award. He is originally from White Bear Lake, Minnesota. He is studying high energy theory in astrophysics and cosmology under Tom Walsh. He plans to use the award to expand his physics library (a never ending project!)
