2013 Lily Hanson

Lily Hanson won the 2013 Homer D. Hagstrum Award in Physics.

Isaiah Gray

2013 Isaiah Gray

Isaiah Gray is originally from Roseville, Minnesota. Isaiah works with Professor Dan Dahlberg in condensed matter experiment. He is looking at giant magnetoresistance in single thin films, with possible applications to improving hard drives. He plans to use the award to pay for tuition, rent, food, and graduate school applications.

2013 Nicholas Kruger

Nicholas Kruger is originally from Madison, Wisconsin. His research focus is in Ferromagnetic spin transport in semiconductors, under advisor Paul Crowell. Nicholas plans to use the award money for on tuition and books for next semester.

Melanie Galloway

2013 Melanie Galloway

Melanie Galloway is originally from White Bear Lake, Minnesota. Her research is on bar effects in AGN host galaxies, using data from the citizen science project Zooniverse. Her advisor is Lucy Fortson. Melanie used a small part of the award money to give her students a pizza party while they played Physics Jeopardy on the last day of their discussion. “I'm trying to convince myself to use the rest for bills, but I'll probably use some to buy the new Pokémon games.“

Chien-Te Wu

2013 Chien-Te Wu

Chien-Te Wu is originally from Hsinchu, Taiwan. His research is on the interplay between ferromagnetism and superconductivity, in particular, the superconducting proximity effects in Ferromagnet/Superconductor heterostructures. His advisor is Professor Oriol Valls. Chien-Te plans to use the monetary part of the fellowship to support his summer research.

Kelly Stifter

2013 Kelly Stifter

Kelly Stifter won the Harry and Viola St. Cyr Scholarship as well as a 2013 TA Award. Kelly is originally from Shoreview, MN. This summer, she will be working with Professor Cushman on the CDMS experiment. “The St. Cyr scholarship will go towards next year's tuition and housing. With the outstanding TA award I treated myself to a new computer (which I was in dire need of).”

Alexey Finkel

2013 Alexey Finkel

Alexey is originally from Moscow, Russia. His research is in experimental particle physics. He is a member of the Compact Muon Solenoid group (one of the two main experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN), with professor Rusack as his adviser. Alexey does not have any specific plans for the monetary award.

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.

Chelsea Dorow

2013 Chelsea Dorow

Chelsea Dorow is originally from Duluth, Minnesota. Her undergraduate research was in condensed matter physics with Professor Martin Greven, focusing on crystal growth and neutron scattering studies of high-temperature superconductors. Her research focuses on condensed matter physics in graduate school at the University of California San Diego next year. Chelsea plans to use the award for a trip to Alaska and for moving to San Diego.

2013 Max Veit

Max Veit is originally from Hamburg, Germany. He has studied computational molecular dynamics with Professor Luskin in the mathematics department. He is looking to start research with Professor Vinals on models of stochastic systems arising in molecular and cellular biophysics. Max plans to use the monetary award to pay for rising tuition costs.
