Byron Drury '08 selected by the American Physical Society as a finalist for the prestigious Apker Award

As a finalist, Byron receives an award of $2,000, plus his expenses for traveling to Washington DC for the final interview process. His research is supervised by Prof. Peter Love of the Haverford Physics Department, and centers on circuit models for quantum computation. This recognition underscores Haverford's strong commitment to student-faculty research. In fact, only 12 years ago another Haverford physics major, Ben Williams '96 was the winner of this national award, for research done together with Prof. Jerry Gollub on mixing and turbulence.

The Strawbridge Observatory at Haverford College houses 12-inch and 16-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes which are actively used by students in Haverford astronomy classes.
