Q&A with Timothy McSorley recipient of the OI Student Travel Grant

Oxford Instruments NanoScience is delighted to announce that Timothy McSorley, Physics and Astronomy student at the University of California, Irvine is at the APS March Meeting 2022 on a student travel grant provided by Oxford Instruments.

The NanoScience team caught up with Timothy to get his thoughts on his travel grant and the APS March Meeting, where he will be presenting his paper.

How does it feel to be the recipient of this travel grant?

I’m very grateful that Oxford Instruments has decided to award me with this travel grant! Finding ways to afford to present research can be very daunting, especially for graduate students. The fact that Oxford can provide funds for doing so is awesome, and has been a huge weight off of my shoulders!

What are you covering in your presentation at APS?

My presentation for the APS March Meeting concerns progress we have made towards creating artificial lattices of electrons and quasiparticles in a two-dimensional heterostructure using surface acoustic waves.

What are you looking forward to experiencing at APS?

The thing I am looking forward to most is seeing new and interesting research being presented by other graduate students in my field, as well as getting to know them after their presentations! Building relationships with other scientists and groups always leads to new ideas and opportunities for collaboration.

The Student Travel Grant is available to full-time students who have presented an accepted paper at the conference, and is part of Oxford Instrument NanoScience’s ongoing efforts to support young researchers.
