Grad Students to Attend Lindau Nobel Meeting


Congratulations to Laura Gray and Justin Pye, whose research accomplishments have led to their selection for the 62nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, this summer!

From July 1st to 6th, 2012, more than 25 Physics and Chemistry Nobel Laureates and 550 young researchers from all over the world will meet at Lindau, Germany, on Lake Constance to "exchange ideas, discuss projects and build international networks."

Further information on the meeting, including the list of participating Nobel Laureates, is available from the conference website: http://www.lindau-nobel.org/2012_62nd_Lindau_Meeting.AxCMS

Laura Gray obtained her B.S. in Physics from North Carolina State University in 2009, with a B.A. in History. She has two first author publications, one in the journal Macromolecules on the physical aging behavior of polymer glasses and one in Physical Review E on shear segregation in granular materials. Laura has given several presentations at international scientific conferences, most recently the American Physical Society (APS) meeting in Boston.
Justin Pye obtained his B.S. in Physics from Carnegie Mellon University in 2008. He has two first author publications from Emory, one on the glass transition in ultrathin free-standing polymer films in Physical Review Letters and one in Macromolecules on the physical aging of ultrathin polymer films, which demonstrates a gradient in dynamics near the free surface. Justin has presented his research at the annual American Physical Society (APS) March meeting for the past three years.

Laura and Justin are graduate students in the laboratory of Dr. Connie Roth.
