Kendra Bergstedt

Bergstedt wins 2017 St. Cyr Scholarship

Kendra Bergstedt won the 2017 Harry and Viola St. Cyr Scholarship for Summer Research. She is originally from Roseville, Minnesota.She will be using the scholarship money to fund her summer research. She hope to develop a simulation of ions moving in the Earth's magnetic field in order to study how they interact with different kinds of waves.Bergstedt's research is focused on space physics, which studies objects like the Sun and the magnetic fields of the planets in the solar system.

Yuting Wang

Wang wins 2017 Larkin Fellowship

Yuting Wang won the 2017 Anatoly Larkin Fellowship. Wang is originally from China. She plans to use the fellowship to support my summer study. Her research is focused on finite size effect around topological phase transitions.

Kyle Greene

Greene wins 2017 T.A. Award

Kyle Greene won a 2017 Outstanding T.A. Award. Greene originally from Shafer, MN, near Taylors Falls. Greene plans to use his award to help improve his teaching skills at an American Modeling Teachers Association workshop in Shakopee this summer. The wordshop provides training in the modeling method for teaching physics. His area of research is Physics Education.

Peter Grul

Grul wins 2017 Outstanding T.A. Award

Peter Grul won a 2017 Outstanding T.A. Award. Grul was born in New Jersey, grew up in California and Pennsylvania, moving around a lot as a kid. When asked what he would do with the award, Grul said, "If I'm smart, I'll put it into savings, but I'm already searching craigslist for new wheels for my car." Grul's area of research is computational plasma space physics.

D'ann Barker

Barker wins 2017 Lu Fellowship

D'ann Barker won the 2017 Hoff Lu Fellowship. Barker completed his undergrad and masters in South Dakota, but we moved around a bit while I was growing up. Barker plans to use her fellowship to continue working on her research. "I feel very honored to have received this fellowship and would like to make a lot of progress during the summer months," she said. Barker works with Professor Prisca Cushman on SuperCDMS which is a direct detection dark matter experiment. Specifically, she works on the CDMSlite data from SuperCDMS as well as low energy background mode.

Hall wins 2017 Franklin Scholarship

Dakota Hall won a 2017 Edmund G. Franklin Scholarship. Hall is originally from Walker, Minnesota. He plans to use the award money to help with tuition and rent. Hall research focuses primarily on astrophysics, looking for patterns in the composition of elements within stars.

Brenda Knauber

Knauber wins Outstanding T.A. Award

Brenda Knauber won a 2017 Outstanding T.A. Award. Knauber is from Coon Rapids, MN. She plans on using the award money to pay back undergrad student loans. Her research is in experimental condensed matter, studying amorphous silicon with Professor Jim Kakalios.

Ryan Quinn

Quin wins 2017 Oswald Scholarship

Ryan Quinn won the 2017 Oswald Scholarship. He is from Arlington Heights, Illinois. He went to high school at Rolling Meadows High School. He plans to use the money to partially cover a ticket to CERN so that he can help get the group's current setup commissioned. His research is writing software for the prototype HGCAL detectors that are being constructed for the CMS experiment at CERN. His focus is on high energy physics.

Ryan Vogt

Vogt wins 2017 Basford Scholarship

Ryan Vogt won the 2017 Jeffrey Basford Scholarship. He is originally from Mukilteo, WA, which is located about 40 minutes north of Seattle. He came to the University of Minnesota because of its strong math and physics programs, the impressive Honors Program, and the truly personalized and friendly experience he had when being recruited to consider the U.
