    Pioneering Physics Education Research at UW

    Sometimes we write about innovations in research or awards for research. Other times we write about innovations in teaching or teaching awards. It’s not that often that we get to talk about innovations in research about teaching. That’s because while it’s a very important and interesting topic, UW physics has not yet made much of a splash in that area- until now. We caught up to graduate student Lalitasri Nandivada (Urja) to talk about how she ended up working in that area.

    News on Nobel

    Interview with Kevin Resch

    This years’s Nobel prize in physics was awarded to Alain Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger for “for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science”. This year’s prize has a few special connections with UW. Alain Aspect received an honorary doctorate from the faculty of Science in 2014. In addition a number of our own faculty within IQC have worked in the Zeilinger group. One of those faculty is Waterloo’s own Kevin Resch. We caught up with Kevin to ask him about his perspective on this year’s prize.
