2014 Adiv Paradise

Adiv won a Hagstrum Award. He worked with his Prof. Paul Woodward on computational simulations of gravitating disks and developed an algorithm to compute the self-gravity of a gas distribution for use with large, modern supercomputers. Their goal is to combine this technique with existing highly-accurate fluid codes to simulate protoplanetary disks. Adiv will work with the Los Alamos National Lab on related computational methods for new supercomputer architectures. He will use the award to help with moving costs and preparation for grad school. Adiv is originally from West St. Paul, MN.


2014 Ian Jaeger

Ian won the J. Morris Blair Scholarship. His research involves the reduction and characterization of galactic spectra for Professor Claudia Scarlata. Ian is determining these galaxies' metallicities and analyzing their spectral line ratios to learn about their evolutionary properties. He will use the scholarship to help fund next year's tuition. Ian is originally from Crystal, MN.


2014 Michael Veit

Michael won a Hagstrum Award.


2014 Kali Ask

Kali won an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship.


2014 Robert Carlon

Robert won an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship.


2014 Matt Epland

Matt won a Hagstum Award. He performed simulation studies of upgrades to the ATLAS detectors tracker with his external advisor, Professor Ayana Arce of Duke University, and his internal advisor, Professor Marvin Marshak. Matt will use his award to support his move to North Carolina to begin graduate school at Duke University. He is originally from Oakdale, Minnesota.


2013 Michael Veidt

Michael Veit won the Jeffrey Basford Scholarship

Tyler Kelley

2013 Tyler Kelley

Tyler is originally from Round Rock, Texas. He researches the starburst activity in dwarf galaxies with Professor Skillman and research associate Kristy McQuinn. Tyler will use the award towards his books and tuition for next semester.

Matthew Epland

2013 Matthew Epland

Matthew is originally from Oakdale, Minnesota. This summer he will work at Duke University and CERN on silicon strip tracker upgrades for the ATLAS detector through the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory REU program. In the past Matthew worked with Professor Cushman's Cryogenic Dark Matter Search research group and with Professor Marshak on neutrino physics. He will attend graduate school to continue his studies in experimental high energy physics. Matthew will use the award to help pay for next year's tuition.

2013 Lily Hanson

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