Yunxiao (Michelle) Zhai, graduate student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy was recently awarded an Ozaki fellowship.
The fellowship program was established in honor of the late Dr. Satoshi Ozaki at Brookhaven National Laboratory to strengthen U.S.-Japan scientific collaboration and in particular facilitate greater cooperation in the areas of accelerator and particle physics.
Ms. Zhai is currently a graduate student working on the experimental particle physics with Professor Chunhui Chen.
With the full financial support of the Ozaaki fellowship, Ms. Zhai will spend one year at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization in Japan to carry out her Ph.D. thesis project using the Belle II detector. More details on the Ozaki fellowship is available at this link.
