Presley Awarded DOE's Graduate Student Research Fellowship

Sunday, May 22 2022

Congratulations to Hunter Presley for winning Department of Energy’s Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Fellowship. With support from this award,  Presley will work with Dr. Jianping Chen, a staff scientist at Jefferson Lab (JLab), on the upgrade, installation, and operation of the polarized 3He target in experimental Hall A of Jefferson Lab. Presley will also conduct the GEn-II experiment and measure the neutron form factor at high momentum transfer in JLab's fall 2022 run. The GEn-II experiment will significantly boost the nucleon form factor study, a classic topic of JLab's research since its commissioning in 1997.
