Quynh Nguyen

2015 Quynh Nguyen

Quynh Nguyen won the 2015 Hagstrum Award. He worked with Professor Jeremiah Mans for the CMS experiment, and with Dr. Alberto Marchionni for the Deep Underground Neutrino experiment at Fermilab. He plans to use the money to visit home (Vietnam) in the summer. He plans to attend the physics PhD program next year at New York University.

Han Fu

2015 Han Fu

Han Fu won the 2015 Larkin Fellowship. Her research focuses on the electronic physics in nano-systems such as nanotubes, nanocrystals and nanoclusters. Her adviser is Professor Boris Shklovskii. She plans to use the fellowship to study the electron distribution around donor nanoclusters in SrTiO3 (STO). She is originally from China.

Melissa Bosch

2015 Melissa Bosch

Melissa Bosch won the 2015 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. She will participate in the UIUC Physics REU program, focusing on the growth of high-temperature superconducting thin films under Dr. Dale Van Harlingen. Her (U of M) adviser is Prof. Paul Crowell. She plans to use the scholarship to pay for tuition. She is originally from Maple Grove, MN.

Alexander Engel

2015 Alexander Engel

Alexander Engel won the 2015 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He plans to use the scholarship for tuition. He is originally from Circle Pines.

Xin Li

2015 Xin Li

Xin Li won the 2015 Aneesur Rahman Award. Her research focuses on phenomenology of hadrons containing heavy quarks, and explaining experimental results from electron-positron collisions. Her advisor is Prof. Mikhail Voloshin. She is originally from Wuhan, a city in China that is also on the river. She spent two years in Purdue University before coming to Minnesota to study particle physics.

Nick Mast

2015 Nick Mast

Nick Mast won the 2015 Outstanding T. A. Award. He works with the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search group under advisor, Prof. Vuk Mandic. He plan to use the monetary part of the award to put a dent in my student loans. Nick grew up in Hayward, WI.

Sajna Hameed

2015 Sajna Hameed

Sajna Hameed won the 2015 Outstanding T.A. Award. She currently works on Random Matrix Theory with Prof. Alex Kamenev. Sajna's work mainly concerns with certain eigenvalue properties of products of random matrices that are seen to be invariant with respect to the underlying probability distribution of the matrix elements. She plans to use the award for a trip to California to visit her brother and friends. Sajna is originally from Kerala, India.

2013 Kevin Nangoi

Kevin Nangoi won an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. His research advisor is Professor James Kakalios and his research focuses on the electrical properties of novel mixed phase amorphous silicon and germanium nanocrystalline (abbreviated as nc-Ge/a-Si:H) thin films. Kevin's recent project was investigating the conductivity hysteresis behavior observed on nc-Ge/a-Si:H thin films. He plans to use the money to cover his undergraduate tuition. Kevin is originally from Indonesia.

2014 Kevin Nangoi

Kevin Nangoi won the Hagstrum Award. He works with Professor James Kakalios to research the electrical properties of novel mixed phase amorphous silicon and germanium nanocrystalline (abbreviated as nc-Ge/a-Si:H) thin films. Kevin's senior honors thesis studied the novel photo-induced conductivity enhancements in nc-Ge/a-Si:H thin films. He will use the award to aid in his move to Ithaca, NY to pursue a Ph.D. in physics at Cornell University. Kevin is originally from Indonesia.

2011 Kristopher Kersten

Kristopher Kersten won the 2011 Leonard F. Burlaga Fellowship
