Jiaming Zheng won the 2016 Anatoly Larkin Fellowship.

Han Fu

2015 Han Fu

Han Fu won the 2015 Larkin Fellowship. Her research focuses on the electronic physics in nano-systems such as nanotubes, nanocrystals and nanoclusters. Her adviser is Professor Boris Shklovskii. She plans to use the fellowship to study the electron distribution around donor nanoclusters in SrTiO3 (STO). She is originally from China.

2014 Xin Li

Xin Li won the 2014 Anatoly Larkin Fellowship.

Mike Schecter

2013 Mike Schecter

Mike Schecter is originally from Linwood, MI. His interests lie in the realm of theoretical condensed matter physics. His main focus aims towards the nature of superfluidity and quantum transport in reduced dimensions, with an emphasis on the dynamics of foreign particles (impurities) in quantum liquids. Such systems are realized and probed experimentally using ultra-cold atomic gases. After graduation, he plans to work as a post-doctoral researcher. He plans to use the fellowship for summer research funding, as well as to help fund trips to physics conferences and summer schools.

Tianran Chen

2012 Tianran Chen

Tianran Chen won the 2012 Anatoly Larkin Fellowship. She studies condensed matter theory under Professor Boris Shklovskii. She plans to use the fellowship for summer research. She is originally from Hangzhou, China.

Peter Koroteev

2011 Peter Koroteev

Peter Koroteev won the 2011 Anatoly Larkin Fellowship. He is originally from Tula, Russia. Arkady Vainshtein is his adviser in the area of supersymmetric quantum field theories and string theory.


2010 Matt Parker

Matt Parker won the Anatoly Larkin Fellowship.

2007 Roman M. Lutchyn

Roman Lutchyn won the Anatoly Larkin Fellowship. He is a theoretical physicist whose research interests is in the area of quantum condensed matter physics. In the past three years he has been working on the problems in mesoscopic superconductivity with possible application to solid state quantum information devices. He studies the fundamental limitations on the coherence time in superconducting quantum bits. Lutchyn recently moved to the University of Maryland to work as a postdoctoral research fellow.
