Congrats to Dennis Perepelitsa ’04 for being named a 2020 Cottrell Scholar Award recipient!

Cottrell Awards are given to a small number of young scholars who are identified as leaders in integrating science, teaching and research. Dennis’ research takes place at the two large particle colliders around the world: the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland, and the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider in New York.

Dennis, a University of Colorado Boulder assistant professor of physics, won the award for his project, titled “Next-Generation Experimental Probes of Hot and Dense Nuclear Matter.”

“This award will allow my group to significantly enhance our study of novel Quark-Gluon Plasma phenomena and potentially shed a light into the behavior of the early universe. Modern physics is increasingly collaborative, with young people playing a major role in all aspects of the experiment. Today’s undergraduates are tomorrow’s expert physicists—this is why I’m so excited to make sure that young scientists in training have access to computational tools and methods.”
