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

Our physics department is actively working to encourage a welcoming environment for women with our women-in-physics program. This program supports activities that can encourage female students to pursue a career in physics, such as inviting outstanding women physicists to give Colloquium talks targeted specifically for an undergraduate audience, monthly social gatherings of women in physics, and providing travel supports for female physics students to attend professional conferences.

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