The 2009 Goldwater Scholarships were announced today. I’m pleased to announce that two University of Richmond students were recognized: Matt Der was awarded a scholarship, and Anna Parker received an honorable mention. In both cases, the honor is extremely well-deserved. If you know these two students, please make sure to congratulate them.
I am chair of the physics department at the University of Richmond. In addition to teaching a variety of undergraduate physics courses, I work on a variety of research projects in cosmology, the study of the origin, structure, and evolution of the Universe. University of Richmond undergraduates are involved in all aspects of this research. If you want to know more about my research, ask me! View all posts by Ted Bunn
