We are pleased to announce that our second year graduate student, Jonathan Samudio, is selected to receive the 2023 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship in Physics and Astronomy - Particle Physics.

Jonathan joined Baylor in Fall 2021, after graduating McMurry University. He is currently a member of the experimental high energy physics group at Baylor and has been doing his research with the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider together with his supervisor, Prof. Hatakeyama.

This prestigious fellowship provides three years of support during a five-year fellowship period. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees at accredited United States institutions. It is the oldest graduate fellowship of its kind and has funded more than 60,000 graduate researchers since 1952, with 42 fellows going on to become Nobel laureates and 450 becoming members of the National Academy of Sciences.

Congratulations Jonathan for receiving this honor.
