He is originally from Sparta, Wisconsin. He did his undergraduate degree at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

Barun Dhar

2012 Barun Dhar

Barun Dhar won an 2012 Outstanding T.A. Award. His research is on modeling the density distribution of stars in galaxies and dark matter in clusters of galaxies and understanding possible connections between the baryonic and dark matter content in galaxies and
clusters of galaxies. He is originally from India.

Grant Remmen

2012 Grant Remmen

Grant Remmen won the 2012 Hagstrum Award in Physics. Originally from Detroit Lakes, MN, Grant is graduating summa cum laude in astrophysics, physics, and math.
