Six UW–Madison undergraduate physics or AMEP majors have been named 2021 Hilldale Fellows, in addition to one computer science major who is conducting their research in the Physics Department.
The Hilldale Undergraduate/Faculty Research Fellowship provides research training and support to undergraduates at UW–Madison. Students have the opportunity to undertake their own research project in collaboration with UW–Madison faculty or research/instructional academic staff. Approximately 97 – 100 Hilldale awards are available each year.
Three students are conducting research in the Department of Physics, including:
- Mathematics and Physics major Gage Siebert, in Prof. Peter Timbie’s group
- Physics major Haley Stueber, in Prof. Dan McCammon’s group
- Computer Sciences major Nikhilesh Venkatasubramanian, in Prof. Tulika Bose’s group
The physics or AMEP majors who have been named Hilldale Fellows and are conducting research outside the department are:
- Mathematics and Physics major Sam Christianson, with Saverio Spagnolie (Mathematics)
- Astronomy – Physics, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Mathematics, Molecular & Cell Biology, Neurobiology, Physics, Psychology, and Zoology major Renxi Li, with Catherine Gallagher (Neurology)
- AMEP major Shenwei Yin, with Joseph Andrews (Mechanical Engineering)
- Computer Sciences and Physics major Heqiao (Wonder) Zhu, with Kevin Eliceiri (LOCI)
