Congratulations to Deven Bowman, a junior physics and mathematics dual-degree student, who was named a 2023 Goldwater Scholar! Deven has done research with Eun-Suk Seo and Steve Rolston and studied abroad in Florence with Luis Orozco. This summer he’ll be at Caltech working on LIGO. And, fun fact, both of his parents are UMD physics alums! 

Deven and two bioengineering majors from UMD are among 413 Scholars named this year. Over the last 15 years, UMD’s nominations yielded 49 scholarships—the most in the nation.
