2009 Jack Hellerstedt

Jack Hellerstedt won the Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship in Physics. Jack is a student in Professor Goldman's group, fabricating samples used to electrostatically tune through the superconductor insulator transition. The award will go toward his last year of school here at the University of Minnesota. He is from St. Paul, Minnesota where he went to St. Paul Central High School.


2009 Nathan Mirman

Nathan Mirman won the Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship in Physics. Nathan is a student in particle physics, and plans to pursue it professionally. He is working for Professor Mans on the CMS detector at CERN. The award will allow him to focus on classes and research during my senior year. He is originally from Edina, Minnesota.


2009 Can Zhang

Can Zhang won the Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship in Physics. Can is a student currently working with Professor C.C. Huang on liquid crystals. He plans to use the award money for non-resident tuition. He is originally from Wuhan, China.

David Christle

2008 David Christle

David Christle won the Outstanding T.A. Award. He is studying experimental condensed matter physics, specifically semiconductor and patterned media experiments. The award will cover his tuition costs for next year. He is originally from St. Cloud, MN


2008 Vanessa Cheesbrough

Vanessa Cheesbrough won the Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. She will be a senior working in Shaul Hanany's observational cosmology laboratory. She is interested in pursuing either observational cosmology or astronomy in graduate school. She plans to use the tuition to help her take extra classes and allow her to stay working in Hanany's Lab. She is originally from Brookings, SD.

David Christle

2007 David J. Christle

David's research interests are spin dynamics, artificial spin ice, geometrically frustrated systems, micromagnetics, and exchange-bias. He plans to use his physics degree to attend graduate school in pursuit of a doctoral degree in condensed matter physics. He is originally from St. Cloud, Minnesota.


2007 Malgorzata Siorek

Margo's research interests include crystallography, particularly the binding of Congo Red with lysozyme and human insulin. She plans to use her degree to pursue either a Masters or Ph.D. She is originally from Wroclaw, Poland.


2007 Ashley L. Nord

Ashley's research interests at this point are still very broad. She is interested in astrophysics and elementary particle physics. She will be spending the summer of 2007 at the Institute for Astrophysics in Hawaii studying the physics of star formation and evolution. Ashley plans to use her degree to attend graduate school in physics. She is orginally from Rapid City, South Dakota.

Craig Muckenhirn

2007 Craig J. Muckenhirn

Craig is still undecided about field of physics in which he would utlimately like to work. He plans to use his degree to pursue a Masters and Ph.D. in physics. He hopes to one day become a professor of physics. Criag is originally from Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.
