Congratulations to Alice Greenberg for passing the PhD Qualifier exam!

Alice Greenberg successfully passed the Physics PhD Qualifier exam, which is a multiple-day written exam covering a wide array of problems in advanced physics. All graduate students must pass this exam to continue in the PhD program, and it represents a major hurdle to advance to PhD candidacy. By studying for and taking the exam, students synthesize and unify what they have learned in their physics coursework, and gain a breadth of knowledge in multiple fields of physics, a set of theoretical tools to tackle various problems in research, and confidence to tackle new physics problems. Many students need to re-take the exam after their first summer in the program, but Alice studied hard and commanded that test. Great job, Alice!
