Congratulations to Shawna Hollen, Brown Physics PhD'13, on her American Physical Society (APS) election!  

University of New Hampshire, Assistant Professor of Physics Shawna Hollen will be a Member-at-Large for the Division of Condensed Matter Physics. Members-at-Large serve on the Executive Committee that oversees the activities of this more than 10,000 member strong division. A student of Professor Jim Valles, Professor Hollen joined the faculty at UNH in 2015 following a postdoc at The Ohio State University. She has set up a lab for novel experiments on 2D, graphene-like materials that have exceptional technological promise. Her group’s scanning probe and unique Ultra High Vacuum electronic transport apparatus’ enable them to explore directly how microscopic defects and surface adsorbates influence their electronic properties.
