Matthew Epland

2011 Matthew Epland

Matthew Epland has received the 2011 Jeffrey Basford Scholarship for He is originally from Oakdale, Minnesota. Epland has been working with Professor Cushman's Cryogenic Dark Matter Search group on Gopher, a HPGe Gamma detector used to screen future detector building materials. He plans on continuing to study dark matter or particle physics in graduate school. Matthew plans on using the award to help pay for next year's tuition.

Jonathan Morris

2011 Jonathan Morris

Jonathan Morris received the 2011 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He is originally from Saint Louis, Missouri. He is currently studying gene expression networks and protein diffusion, in order to quantitatively characterize the output of transcription-translation reactions. His advisor is Vincent Noireaux. He plans to use the scholarship to cover tuition and living expenses during the academic year.

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!)

Robert Peterson

2011 Robert Peterson

Robert Peterson won the 2011 Hagstrum Award. He is originally from Duluth, Minnesota. Peterson worked for Shaul Hanany doing electrical and mechanical design of components for the EBEX experiment. He will be attending graduate school at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he plans to study experimental quantum optics.He plans to use the scholarship money for moving to Boulder this summer.

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.

Christorpher Geach

2011 Christopher Geach

Christopher Geach has won the 2011 Hagstrum Award. Geach is originally from Minneapolis. His research advisor is Shaul Hanany. He has been working in experimental cosmology, but plans to pursue theoretical particle physics. The award will go towards funding a bicycle trip to South America.
