Gray,Isaiah_Hagstrum_2014.JPG

2014 Isaiah Gray

Isaiah won the Hagstrum Award. His advisor is Professor Dan Dahlberg and they work in microscopic magnetic dynamics. For Isaiah's senior thesis, he measured the frequency dependence of AC magnetic susceptibility of permalloy thin films. He will use the monetary part of the award to help fund a canoe trip to the Boundary Waters and to help his move to Ithaca, NY. Isaiah is originally from Roseville, MN.

2014 Jared Matzke

Jared won an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He works with Professor David Thomas in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Biophysics. They use site-directed fluorescent probes to investigate the structure of myosin, a motor protein essential for many cellular and physiological phenomena such as muscle contraction, cellular motility, and cell division. Jared will use the award to fund summer coursework. He is originally from Woodbury, Minnesota.

Nguyen,Quynh_Franklin_2014.JPG

2014 Quynh Nguyen

Quynh won an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship, which he will aid him with tuition. Originally from Vietnam, he now works with Prof. Jeremy Mans on Rapid calibration for the Forward Calorimeters of the LHC’s CMS detector at 13TeV, in preparation for the LHC's new runs after its upgrade in 2015. This summer he will intern at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, working on simulation code to model neutrino beam target and devices in NuMI and LBNE lines under Dr. Alberto Marchionni, and will also attend the U.S Particle Accelerator School for training in beam physics and accelerator technology.

2014 Nicholas Krueger

Nicholas won the Harry and Viola St. Cyr Scholarship. His research with Professor Paul Crowell focuses on the characterization of noise from spintronic devices, as well as using finite element modeling to simulate how electrons move through semiconductors. Nicholas will use the award for living expenses this summer as well as tuition next semester. He is originally from Madison, Wisconsin.

Paradise,Adiv_Hagstrum_2014.JPG

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.

Jaeger,Ian_Blair_2014.JPG

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 Robert Carlon

Robert won an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship.

Epland,Matt_Hagstrum_2014.JPG

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.
