Robin Heinonen

2012 Robin Heinonen

Robin Heinonen is interested in a variety of areas of mathematical and theoretical physics. He is researching superintegrability of classical and quantum Hamiltonian systems with Willard Miller,and working with Woods Halley on a condensed matter project applying an interesting phase originating from a constant electric field to electron interferometry. He is also studying information theory and Sobolev-type inequalities under Sergey Bobkov. He plans to use the scholarship to pay rent and for summer courses. He is originally from Eden Prairie, Minnesota.


2011 Alex Ditter

Alex Ditter won the Alfred O.C. Nier Scholarship in Physics.


2010 Grant Remmen

Grant Remmen won the 2010 A.O.C. Nier Scholarship in Physics. He plans to pursue a Ph.D. in astrophysics. In 2010, Grant researched black hole distortion caused by motion relative to the cosmic microwave background, under the mentorship of Dr. Robert Gehrz. In 2009, Grant developed a new assessment of the dark matter distribution of the Milky Way Galaxy, under the mentorship of Dr. Thomas Walsh. He is originally from Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.


2009 Molly Krogstad

Molly Krogstad won the A.O.C. Nier Undergraduate Scholarship in Physics. Molly is a student in condensed matter physics and atomic, molecular, and optical physics. This summer she will be participating in a physics REU at the University of Colorado at Boulder, doing research on ultracold molecules. She plans to use the award money to cover the cost of tuition. She is originally from Maple Grove, Minnesota.


2008 Nathan Mirman

Nathan Mirman won the A.O.C. Undergraduate Scholarship in Physics. He is a student in high energy physics working with Professor Mans on aspects of the trigger system in the CMS (Compact Muon Solenoid) detector at CERN. Nathan is originally from Minneapolis and plans to continue in high energy physics professionally.

Nic Eggert

2007 Nicholas S. Eggert

Nic Eggert was one of the recipients of the Alfred O. C. Nier Scholarship for 2007. Last summer he worked in condensed matter with Professor Zudov, and this summer he is working at CERN in Geneva with Professor Rusack on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS). He plans to use his physics degree to pursue a Ph.D.> He would eventually like to work in research at a university. Eggert is originally from Iron Ridge, Wiscconsin.
