Prize Recipient

Martha-Helene Stapleton


Hi there! I'm finishing up my first year at Caltech, wavering between physics and applied physics as my selected option. My interests lie mainly with condensed matter physics, which I will continue to pursue this summer, while investigating the fringe field regions of narrow channels in 2-D electron systems, in Prof. Jim Eisenstein's lab. I'm currently on the ASCIT Board of Directors as Freshman Director at Large and have also held positions as a member of the Entrepreneur Club Executive committee and Fleming House Frosh Work-Chair. I also participate in the women's glee club, CLASES (Caltech Latino Assoc. of Students in Engineering and Science), NSBE, and Misty Isle Scottish Pipe Band. I have been name a Caltech Presidential Scholar and Mellon Minority Fellow. Thank you so much for this honor as an APS Scholar.
