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.

Andrew Altobell

2010 Andrew Altobell

Andrew Altobell won the Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship in Physics. Originally from Virginia, Minnesota (on the iron range), Andrew would eventually like to focus just on theory. He will use his scholarship money toward his fall 2010 tuition.

Brian Benton

2010 Brian Benton

Brian Benton won the Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship in Physics. Originally from Maple Grove, Minnesota, Brian's main research interest is in nanotechnology and spintronics. He plans to use the scholarship money to pay for his tuition so he doesn't have to take a job during the semester and can focus on his UROP project and honors thesis.
