Please describe why someone applying to graduate school who is interested in a female-friendly department should choose your department.

The Department of Physics has a larger-than-average fraction of faculty who are female. There is a Women of Physics group that meets regularly; it includes undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty. The Women in Science and Engineering program enhances the professional development of women faculty and students in the sciences and engineering fields, with regular seminars, networking sessions, and social events. Students from all backgrounds with different levels of preparation are encouraged to succeed, through extra support, mentoring, and sometimes tutoring. The Department is very committed to the success of students from groups that are underrepresented in Physics, including women. The goal is to educate a professional community where all are welcome and recognized for their contributions.

Please include the name of faculty or staff member and an email they can be reached at for further questions.
