Joshua and Rebecca

Joshua Dillon, PhD candidate in Physics, and Rebecca Sobel Levinson, 4th year PhD student in Astrophysics, have been selected to attend the 62nd Annual Meeting of Nobel Laureates and Students in Lindau, Germany, July 1st through July 6th.  Since 1951, Nobel Laureates in Chemistry, Physics, and Physiology/Medicine convene annually in Lindau to have open and informal meetings with students and young researchers.  The Laureates lecture on the topic of their choice in the mornings and participate in less formal, small-group discussions with the students in the afternoons and some evenings.  Students and young researchers are nominated and selected by sponsoring agencies and organizations.  Dillon’s research involves the development of a new cosmological probe that has the potential to make the biggest ever 3D maps of the universe. Levinson is studying aberrations from gravitational lensing and telescope optics.
