Every year, top graduate students from the Faculty of Science are nominated for the W.B. Pearson Medal, which is given to a Doctoral student from each department in recognition of their creative research, and the Dean of Science Award, which is given to a master’s student from each department in recognition of outstanding performance.
The Dean of Science Award in Physics & Astronomy has been won by Allison Sachs, for her exceptional work on "Entanglement Harvesting and Divergences in Unruh-DeWitt Detector Pairs", supervised by Robb Mann and Eduardo Martin-Martinez.
The W.B. Pearson Medal in Physics & Astronomy has been awarded to Elizabeth Gould for her research on "New Views on the Cosmological Big Bang", with Niayesh Afshordi.
These awards will be received at Spring Convocation 2018.
