Graduate students awarded ARCS Fellowships

Posted in News Story

Two physics Ph.D. students, Marguerite Brown and Bryce Yoshimura, have been named 2013-14 ARCS Fellows. Marguerite, who was also a 2012-13 ARCS Fellow, will be continuing her interdisciplinary research in the Blair lab on how microtubules, which provide structural support in cells, organize into different types of structures under different mechanical conditions. Bryce is conducting theoretical research in the Freericks group on using ion trap quantum simulators to study frustrated quantum magnetism. The mission of the ARCS Foundation is to advance science and technology in the US by awarding fellowships and scholarships to outstanding students in science and engineering.
