Congratulations to physics graduate student Alex Wang, who is one of 65 graduate students selected for the Department of Energy’s Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program. He is a student in Prof. Sau Lan Wu’s group.
SCGSR awardees work on research projects of significant importance to the Office of Science mission and that address societal challenges at national and international scale. Wang’s research is part of the priority research area of High Energy Physics. Awardees carry out part of their research at a DOE national lab, and his host lab is the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
“The DOE Office of Science provides the scientific foundation for solutions to some of our nation’s most complex challenges, and now more than ever we need to invest in a diverse, talented pipeline of scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs who can help us build a brighter future,” said Dr. Harriet Kung, Deputy Director for Science Programs in the Office of Science. “These outstanding students will help us tackle mission-critical research at our labs as this experience helps them begin a successful and rewarding career.”
Awardees were selected from a diverse pool of graduate applicants from institutions around the country. Selection was based on merit peer review by external scientific experts.
