Distinguished Doctoral Awards  

The five recipients of the 2016 Distinguished Doctoral Student Award represent the breadth and depth of the research Stony Brook University students undertake. Two of the five, are students of the Physics and Astronomy department.

Wolfger Peelaers: "Exact Results in Supersymmetric and Superconformal Quantum Field Theories"
Wolfger completed his PhD in Stony Brook's Department of Physics and Astronomy, where he was part of the C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics, in August 2015. His area of research is theoretical high energy physics, and more specifically the study of supersymmetric and superconformal quantum field theories.

Mao Zeng: "QCD Factorization and Effective Field Theories at the LHC"
Mao completed his PhD in the Department of Physics and Astronomy in August 2015. His dissertation research explores using quantum chromdynamics (QCD) to make precise predictions for high-energy particle collisions, for example at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). He is currently a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of California, Los Angeles.
