Bennett Doherty (’18) wins the Robert K. Gould Prize in Physics

ROBERT K. GOULD PRIZE IN PHYSICS
Established in 1994 by friends and colleagues in honor of Robert K. Gould, professor of physics, 1968–1994. Awarded to the graduating senior whose senior work in physics best exemplifies the high standards for research set by Professor Gould. The 2018 Robert K. Gould Prize in Physics was awarded to Bennett Doherty for his outstanding laboratory work under the supervision of Assistant Professor of Physics Michael E. Durst. Throughout his hands-on project creating a motorized automatic system for alignment of laser beams, Bennett’s accomplishments arose from his initiative, perseverance, and professional aptitude. Among students who exceed our high expectations for excellence in senior research, Bennett stands out because of the breadth and depth of understanding he exhibited in experimental and conceptual aspects of research.
