Glesener awarded Allen M. Goldman Faculty Fellowship

Associate Professor Lindsay Glesener has been awarded the Allen M. Goldman Faculty Fellowship for the 2024 - 2025 academic year.    This new fellowship was established by former students and colleagues of Regents Professor Emeritus Allen M. Goldman, who was on the faculty of the School from 1965 – 2020.  Professor Goldman is one of the pioneers in thin-film superconductivity.  Among other honors, he was the recipient of the Fritz London Memorial Prize in Low Temperature Physics (2002), was elected a member of the National Academy of Sciences (2007), named Regents Professor of the University of Minnesota (2008), and was awarded the Oliver Buckley Prize of the American Physical Society (2015).  Professor Goldman, who mentored more than 50 PhD students, was Head of the School of Physics and Astronomy from 1996 - 2009.

Professor Glesener joined the School as an Assistant Professor in 2015 and is an expert on the physics of the sun.  She is particularly interested in the mechanisms for particle acceleration, such as solar flares and coronal mass ejections.
