Brandon Bergerud

2012 Brandon Bergerud

Brandon Bergerud won the 2012 Edmond Franklin Scholarship. He works with Lawrence Rudnick on Giant Radio Haloes. One project will examine the findings of S. Brown regarding the bimodality of Giant Radio Haloes by using a sample not accessible with their survey. My second project will involve analyzing non-polarized emission from individual clusters using the GALFACTS survey. Since the survey is in a rudimentary stage at the moment, he will also be involved in developing new analysis techniques. Bergerud plans to use the money to help pay for tuition. He is originally from Fergus Falls, MN.

Anthony Kremin

2012 Anthony Kremin

Anthony Kremin won the 2012 Edmond Franklin Scholarship. His advisor is Vuk Mandic on the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatories (LIGO) experiment. He is currently studying the broader range of “injected” (man-made) signals. In addition, he is working on a diagnostic tool meant to analyze and map short-duration events more effectively by implementing new functions. He plans to use the scholarship for tuition next year. He is originally from Alexandria and Rogers, Minnesota.

2011 Grant Remmen

Grant Remmen won the 2011 Edmund G. Franklin Scholarship. Originally from Detroit Lakes, MN, Remmen plans to pursue a PhD in theoretical astrophysics. He is currently working with Dr. Kris Davidson on mapping emission lines near Eta Carinae using new Hubble data. In 2011, Remmen researched with Dr. Kinwah Wu at University College London on general relativistic 3-body spin-orbit coupling. Previous research includes black hole distortion, under Dr. Robert Gehrz, and a new estimate of Galactic dark matter, under Dr. Thomas Walsh. Remmen has received the AAS Chambliss Astronomy Achievement Award.

Andrew Emerick

2011 Andrew Emerick

Andrew Emerick was awarded an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He is originally from Dearborn, Michigan. Dr. Rudnick is his research advisor in the area of large scale structure, namely the physics of galaxy clusters in the radio and x-ray spectrum. In addition to large scale structure, he is interested in dark matter, gravitational waves and general relativity, and high energy particle physics research.
He intends to use the scholarship to pay for tuition.

Cristian Gaidau

2011 Cristian Gaidau

Cristian Gaidau received a 2011 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He is originally from Chisinau, Republic of Moldova. He is studying theoretical particle physics, quantum field theory and mathematical physics. This summer he will be working in the field of experimental neutrino physics under Prof. Kenneth Heller for the NOvA collaboration. He plans to use the scholarship to cover tuition expenses.

Anthony Kremin

2011 Anthony Kremin

Anthony Kremin has received a 2011 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He is originally from Rogers, Minnesota. He is studying gravitational waves, cosmology, and particle physics. He works with Vuk Mandic on Gravitational Wave Research dealing with the analysis of a simulated LIGO event. He is also involved in research with Marvin Marshak dealing with the analysis of neutrino data from the MINOS detector located in the Soudan Mine in Northern Minnesota. He plans to use the award to help pay for tuition.

Ambrose Mitchell

2011 Mitchell Ambrose

Mitchell Ambrose won a 2011 Edmond G. Franklin Award. He is originally from Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. His research interests are in cosmology and in the intersection of physics and philosophy. He has a strong interest in teaching physics and plans to use the scholarship to help pay for the cost of my education.

Zijun Chen

2011 Zijun Chen

Zijun Chen won the 2011 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He is originally from Roseville, Minnesota. He is doing research in condensed matter physics under advisor E. D. Dahlberg. He plans to use the scholarship to help cover living expenses and graduate school applications.

Jonathan Morris

2011 Jonathan Morris

Jonathan Morris received the 2011 Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. He is originally from Saint Louis, Missouri. He is currently studying gene expression networks and protein diffusion, in order to quantitatively characterize the output of transcription-translation reactions. His advisor is Vincent Noireaux. He plans to use the scholarship to cover tuition and living expenses during the academic year.
