Rutgers Physics & Astronomy postdoc Katherine Myers has received the American Physical Society Dissertation Award in Nuclear Physics

Rutgers Physics & Astronomy postdoc Katherine Myers has received the American Physical Society Dissertation Award in Nuclear Physics for her thesis research on the Qweak experiment at Jefferson Lab, under the supervision of Prof. Allena Opper of The George Washington University. Only about a dozen such dissertation awards exist, so these are very selective awards. The Qweak experiment uses parity violating electron scattering to determine the weak charge of the proton.
