Merrick wins undergraduate research prize

In recognition for his excellent work on our strontium project, Merrick Ho won the Lijen medal for the best undergraduate research project in physics. This award is given to one NUS physics undergraduate each year. Merrick was involved in an impressive variety of experimental efforts, and it’s great to see his hard work recognized in this way. Congrats, Merrick!

Goodbye Ravin, Merrick, and Neville!

Goodbye Ravin, Merrick, and Neville!

Ravin, Neville, and Merrick will be leaving our team. Ravin will be starting graduate school at Princeton in the group of Waseem Bakr, and Neville will also start a PhD programme with Jacob Covey at UIUC. Meanwhile Merrick will take a job with Singapore’s Defence Science and Technology Agency.

To thank them for their important contributions to the strontium experiment, we took them out bowling and then ate dinner at the Jolly Rodger Pub. Best of luck Ravin, Neville, and Merrick!
