Ryan Low awarded Dean’s Undergraduate Award for Excellence

Cool Star Lab undergraduate researcher Ryan Low

Ryan Low, an undergraduate researcher in the Cool Star Lab, has been awarded the UCSD Division of Physical Sciences Dean’s Undergraduate Award for Excellence for 2019-2010.

Ryan is a Physics major and has been a member of the Cool Star Lab since Winter 2018. He has been leading the analysis of optical spectral of very low mass stars and brown dwarfs obtained with the Lick Observatory KAST instrument, and his work is uncovering some of our nearest (and previously overlooked) stellar neighbors.

The Dean’s Award recognizes undergraduate students for academic excellence throughout their undergraduate period. Students are nominated by faculty and advisors, and evaluated by selection committees in each department. Ryan is one of 33 students across the Division that were selected for this award this year. Ryan and his fellow recipients will be honored at a reception in May.

Congratulations Ryan!
