Cotton Awarded DOE’s Graduate Student Research Fellowship

Tuesday, October 5 2021

Congratulations to Cameron Cotton for winning Department of Energy’s Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Fellowship. With support from this award, Cameron will work on two research topics with Dr. Dave Gaskell, a staff scientist at Jefferson Lab (JLab). The first is an upgrade of the Compton polarimeter that is essential for the upcoming high precision parity-violation experiments including MOLLER and SoLID‘s PVDIS. The second is to prepare for the XEM (x>1 and EMC) run group experiments that are coming online during JLab’s summer/fall 2022 run.
