Eliott Imhoff

Imhoff wins Franklin Scholarship

Elliott Imhoff won a 2017 Franklin Scholarship. He is originally from Madison, WI. "Even though it took somewhat of a crisis of identity to throw off my Badger heritage and become a Gopher, I was able to do it and am extremely happy with my decision." He plans on using this money to pay for school. "Not super original, I know, but because I'm a computer science and physics double major, it's going to take me five years to graduate, with this award doing a lot to ease that burden." More »

Pedro Angulo-Umana

Angulo-Umana wins 2017 Marquit Scholarship

Pedro Angulo-Umana won the 2017 Erwin Marquit and Doris Grieser Marquit Undergraduate Scholarship. He was born in Costa Rica and grew up in Bentonville, Arkansas. He plans on using the award money to help pay for his undergraduate degree. His research is focused on theoretical physics and mathematical physics.

Chun Chen

Chen wins 2017 Rahman Award

Chun Chen won the 2017 Aneesur Rahman Award. He is originally from Shanghai, China. He plans to spend the award money to attend academic conferences and workshops. His research expertise is on condensed matter theory, in particular, the interaction effects on low-dimensional topological superconducting systems and more recently, the critical phenomena of many-body localization phase transition.

Ryan Schmitz

Schmitz wins 2017 Franklin Scholarship

Ryan Schmitz won a 2017 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He is from Rogers, Minnesota, a suburb in the north metro. He plans to use the money to pay tuition and to help fund his studies at CERN this summer. He currently work with Prisca Cushman in the CDMS collaboration, where he uses simulations to help design improvements to a dark matter detector. More generally, he is interested in studying computational particle physics and working with particle accelerators to look for new physics beyond the standard model.
