Sugarman Awards go to three physics graduate students
Three graduate students in physics have received the 21st annual Nathan Sugarman Awards for Student Research.
Christopher John Meyer received the award “For his work on the measurement of the dijet cross section using the ATLAS detector at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.” Meyer’s graduate research adviser is Mark Oreglia, professor in physics.
Anton Kapliy received the award “For his work on developing an advanced electronics system for the trigger of the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider.” Kapliy’s graduate research adviser is Melvyn Shochet, the Elaine M. and Samuel D. Kersten Jr. Distinguished Service Professor in Physics.
Stephen Green received the award “For the analysis of the effects on cosmological dynamics of nonlinear phenomena occurring on scales small compared with the Hubble radius.” Green’s graduate research adviser is Robert Wald, the Charles H. Swift Distinguished Service Professor in Physics.
Nathan Sugarman, SB’37, PhD’41, was a charter member of the Enrico Fermi Institute and a longtime professor in chemistry. He died in 1990.
