Lance Davis won the 2019 Hagstrum Award. Lance is from Zimmerman, MN. He plans to put the award money towards the cost of moving from Minneapolis to New Hampshire. He worked with Professor Cindy Cattell on solar wind shock waves and with Professor Lindsay Glesener on the FOXSI III sounding rocket mission.

Nicholas Mast

Mast received the 2019 Pepin Fellowship

Nicholas Mast received the 2019 Robert O. Pepin Fellowship. Nicholas is originally from Hayward, Wisconsin. He plans plan to use the fellowship to fund research into the use of neutron capture processes for low energy detector calibration. This summer he is part of a group are running an experiment to measure such processes in a cryogenic germanium detector. His area of research interest is Cryogenic particle detectors for dark matter detection.

Michael Laraia
