Noah Brenny and Saya Mitra, graduate students in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, were 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 facilitate greater cooperation in the areas of accelerator and particle physics. Mr. Brenny and Mr. Mitra are graduate students working on experimental particle physics with Professor Chunhui Chen. With the full financial support of the Ozaki fellowship, they will spend one year at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization in Tsukuba, Japan, to carry out their Ph.D. thesis project using the Belle II detector.
