Dhruv Dixit Named Goldwater Scholar  
Congratualtions to physics and mathematics major Dhruv Dixit for being named a 2015 Goldwater Scholar.

Dhruv is member of Stony Brook University's Honors College. He is only the 34th Goldwater Scholar honoree in Stony Brook since 1992. The award is among the most prestigious honors given nationally to college undergraduate students.

Dhruv is originally from Gujarat, India. He works at the PHENIX detector with Tom Hemmick, Abhay Deshpande and Axel Drees at Brookhaven National Laboratory's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. The high-energy collisions produced at RHIC give rise to a super-hot quark-gluon plasma, and the study of the properties of this plasma is crucial for testing the Standard Model of particle physics. Dhruv will participate in the analysis of the data currently being collected at RHIC.

Dhruv is planning to seek a PhD in physics following graduation.
