Guy Geyer Marcus
The recipient from a PhD-granting institution is Guy Geyer Marcus of Wesleyan University, whose research was titled "Rotational Dynamics of Anisotropic Particles in Turbulence: Measurements of Lagrangian Vorticity and the Effects of Alignment with the Velocity Gradient." His research advisor at Wesleyan was Greg Voth, and he is now pursuing graduate studies at The Johns Hopkins University.
The recipient from an institution that does not grant a PhD in physics is Hao Shi of the Rochester Institute of Technology. Under the supervision of Mishkat Bhattacharya he did research on "Torsional Optomechanics: A Dialogue Between Spinning Photons and Twisting Oscillators." He is now doing graduate work at Cornell.
