A big congratulations to our undergraduate researchers who have received generous and prestigious departmental research awards. Congrats to Yaashnaa Singhal on her selection for the Jeremiah D. Sullivan Undergraduate Research Award, as well as to Antonio Gonzalez and Jiarui Yu on their selection for the John A. Gardner, Jr Undergraduate Research Award. Congrats to all […]
A huge congrats to Shraddha Agrawal on her selection for the prestigious Charles P. Slichter Graduate Fellowship, a fellowship in memory of the great Charlie Slichter. Congratulations on the well-deserved honor!
On 6/17/2021, graduate student Jackson Ang’ong’a successfully defended his thesis “Towards Synthetic Rydberg Lattices with Optical Tweezer Arrays.” Jackson broke the record for most attendees at a PhD defense, with, in my estimation, a hundred people in attendance at what was a terrific presentation. A huge congrats to Dr. Jackson Ang’ong’a! He’ll be sorely missed, […]
On May 13, group member Alex An gave a fantastic presentation on his thesis research. Despite the inability to provide in-person theatrics, he was able to successfully defend his thesis, earning his PhD and the moniker AlexAnDr. We’ll miss Alex dearly, as he’ll be leaving for the frozen pastures (beautiful Twin Cities area) of Minnesota. […]
A big congratulations to our undergraduate researchers who took home some terrific honors and awards. Congrats to Hannah Manetsch on her selection for the Ernest M. Lyman Prize awarded to an outstanding graduating physics major, to Rithi Anandwade on her selection for the Lorella M. Jones Award, and to Yaashnaa Singhal on her selection for […]
A big congratulations to Fangzhao Alex An on his selection for the prestigious John Bardeen Award, to Jackson Ang’ong’a on his selection for the esteemed Drickamer Fellowship, and to Sai Paladugu on his selection for the august Scott Anderson Award! Great work and well-deserved!
We’re really grateful to acknowledge new NSF support in the way of a CAREER award, which will help us pursue a new effort exploring synthetic lattices in strongly interacting collections of Rydberg atoms, on the project led by Jackson Ang’ong’a. Thanks NSF! This award will also help fund undergraduate-led research on topological mechanical networks, in […]
Jackson Ang’ong’a and Garrett Williams were selected to attend the exciting 2020 Boulder Summer School on Ultracold Matter! Great job!
A big congratulations to Eric on a terrific defense of his thesis!!! We’ll be sad to see Eric move on … about 5 meters East, as a postdoc on the NaRb molecule experiment.
Graduate student Fangzhao Alex An was chosen as one of the U.S. representatives to attend the 2019 Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting in Lindau, Germany. This meeting brings Nobel prize-winning scientists together with “the next generation of leading scientists,” and Alex’s selection was well-deserved!
