Student Lands 1st Place Conference Finish

A Physics graduate student won first prize recently for his poster at the American Physical Society Bridge Program and National Mentoring Community Conference.

Brian Zamarripa’s project was entitled “Success is a puzzle: sorting out the pieces with metaphor analysis” and focused on characterizing success in Physics from the perspective of women.

“This award means to me that the work we are doing is important and valuable to our community. More than anything I hope this award means that we are making progress towards a Physics culture that is more welcoming and caring toward all of us,” Zamarripa said.

The conference took place Nov. 16-18 at Google headquarters and Stanford University in California.
