PSD graduate students earn Physical Sciences Prizes for Teaching
May 30, 2023
Six graduate students have been awarded the Physical Sciences Teaching Prizes for 2022-23: Kapil Chandran (Mathematics), Katelyn Feuling (Chemistry), Harry Fosbinder-Elkins (Physics), Ananth Kamath (Chemistry), Claire Lessler (Physics), and Jonathan Liu (Computer Science).
The Teaching Prize is based on nominations from students who shared compelling evidence of honorees’ outstanding contributions made to their education. Excellence in teaching is a fundamental goal of the University of Chicago and these nominees exemplified this standard by fostering a love of learning in classes that students were previously fearful of, by expressing belief in their students’ abilities to overcome adversity and challenges, by creatively and persistently ensuring that students were mastering concepts, and by maintaining a level of commitment to their students’ success that goes beyond expectations. Each will receive $1,000 as part of the award.
