Michael Kammer graduated from Loyola in 2012 with a BS in Physics. He went on to pursue a PhD at Vanderbilt University in Biomedical Engineering. He then completed a postdoc in Chemistry at Vanderbilt University and then another in Pulmonary medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He is now a Research Assistant Professor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where his research focus is on early detection of lung cancer.
The 2022 recipients are Chad Hill and Jonathan Andino Moncada!
This is a departmental award that emphasizes scholarship and research achievement in physics and is given by the faculty of the Physics Department as a token of confidence and encouragement.
The 2022 recipients are Joshua Leaney (left in this picture) and Ayana Smith.
This is a departmental award for achievement in an extracurricular research project. The award is given by the faculty of the Physics Department as a token of recognition for outstanding work in executing , and disseminating the results of a research project. Unfortunately, Ayana smith could not attend the awards ceremony.
The 2022 recipient is Bradley Kerkhof.
This award is chosen by the faculty from the Department of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics and Computer Science, and is awarded by the Dean of the College of Arts and SCiences.
The 2022 Recipient is Kimia Mirlohi.
This is a departmental award names in honor of Karl Maring S.J., a former professor. This award is presented to students who have demonstrated scholarship in physics and who have by their knowledge and enthusiasm encouraged others in the study of physics.
This Fall, graduating senior Bradley Kerkhof will begin pursuing his PhD in University of Maryland’s (UMD) Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. There he will be researching nanophotonic devices to be integrated with circuits for quantum computers still in development.
At Loyola Bradley worked in Dr. Kargol's research group. Together with a recent Loyola Physics alumnus, Cole Green, they contributed to a collaboration lead by Dr. Celardo from University of Florence, Italy. Bradley modeled photosynthetic antenna complexes in green sulfur bacteria, in an attempt to predict and understand quantum behavior in biological organisms. He also has experience in Dr. McHugh’s Quantum Optics Lab at Loyola. He is the Recipient of the Reverend John H. Mullahy, S.J., and Donald C. Faust, M.D. Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Physical Sciences as well as the Reverend Percy A. Roy, S.J. Memorial Award, presented to the student(s) who achieved the highest academic record during their entire four-year career at Loyola. He graduates with majors in Physics and Mathematics, and a minor in computer science.
Prof. Kargol has been invited as a keynote speaker at BURS, the Belmont Undergraduate Research Symposium, in Nashville, TN. BURS, held every two years, is a venue for undergraduate researchers from Belmont University to present their research in arts and humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences and mathematics.
Joshua Leaney received the Francis A. Benedetto Award for Excellence in Physics. This is a departmental award that emphasizes scholarship and research achievement in physics and is given by the faculty of the Physics Department as a token of confidence and encouragement.
Physics students won multiple departmental and college awards during the 2020-2021 academic year.
Kerry P. Redmann, Jr. P.E., a graduate in physics in 1978 has had a long successful career in the petroleum industry. He earned a master's degree in petroleum engineering from LSU and is a certified professional engineer.
