Prize Recipient


Daniel Bulhosa-Solorzano
Massachusetts Institute of Technology


My name is Daniel Bulhosa. I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, but I have had the pleasure of living in the town of Oberlin, Ohio for the past 6 years. A couple of things have drawn me to physics. One,  is that physics combines science and mathematics, which are fields that fascinate me. Mainly, though, the reason I chose to study physics is because I find it beautiful: the fact that nature is governed by mathematical laws is very profound.

Furthermore, as Albert Einstein said, “The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible.” Besides studying physics I like to make art, play classical guitar, play soccer, and read about politics, philosophy and history. I will be attending the Massachusetts Institute of Technology this coming fall.
