Congrats to UW-Madison undergradaute Sam Li, who has been awarded a Welton Sophomore Honors Summer Apprenticeship to work with us in the Kolkowitz Lab this summer! Sam will be working with grad students Aedan and Matt on implementing spin-to-charge conversion in the NV center confocal microscope.
Congrats to Matt Cambria, who has officially accepted the UW-Madison Physics PhD program’s offer of admission! Matt will be (re)joining the Kolkowitz group as a graduate student after working with us as a volunteer researcher this past year.
Congratulations to Megan and Aedan, who were both selected for the prestigious and selective National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship program!
