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.

Ryan Frink

2013 Ryan Frink

Ryan Frink is originally from Annandale, Minnesota. The focus of his research is the study of high temperature superconductivity in the cuprates. His advisor is Prof. Martin Greven. Ryan plans on using the award money for tuition.

Brandon Bergerud

2013 Brandon Bergerud

Brandon Bergerud is originally from Fergus Falls Minnesota. He has worked with Prof. Rudnick on a couple projects dealing with radio galaxies and looking for the 10^5 K gas component in galaxy clusters. He will be participating in a REU program at Bucknell University this summer looking for brown dwarfs and extra-solar planets. Brandon plans on using the award for studying abroad at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology during the coming academic year.

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.

Sener Ozonder

2013 Sener Ozonder

Sener Ozonder is originally from Turkey. The focus of his research is calculating the initial conditions for the very first moments of the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in heavy-ion collisions at RHIC, BNL and LHC, CERN. He uses effective models based on Quantum Chromodynamics. The initial conditions such as the initial energy density determines the later evolution of QGP as it expands. The expanding QGP has features that are similar to the Big Bang. Sener’s advisor is Prof. Joseph Kapusta. He plans to use the fellowship for support during the summer while he is writing his dissertation.

Hieu Nguyen

2013 Hieu Nguyen

Hieu Nguyen is originally from Vietnam. His research is stochastic vector field simulation used in magnetohydrodynamics simulation in astrophysical objects. His research advisor is Professor Thomas Jones. Hieu plans to use the award money to cover tuition.

Xiangwei Tang

2013 Xiangwei Tang

Xiangwei Tang is originally from China. Her research focuses on observations of magnetic field reconnection at the Earth's dayside magnetopause and the associated plasma waves using data from Polar, Cluster and THEMIS satellites. Her advisor is Cynthia Cattell. Xiangwei plans to use the award money to fund a statistical study of the roles of waves in magnetopause reconnection using THEMIS data this summer.
