Brian Hsu awarded the department's 2021 Goldberg Prize for best junior research thesis.

May 14, 2021

Brian's thesis was entitled Bayesian Analysis of 21 Hydrogen-poor Superluminous Supernovae from the Dark Energy Survey and No Evidence for a Redshift Evolution." His advisor was Griffin Hosseinzadeh.

Brian has submitted it to both arXiv and the ApJ.  In the meantime, he will continue a project from last summer with the intention of publishing it by the end of the summer. Brian will be on leave this coming academic year but will most likely continue doing research with Edo Berger and start brainstorming for his senior thesis some time in the spring.
