Berkeley Physics is pleased to announce that Eden McEwen has been awarded a 2020 Optics and Photonics Education Scholarship by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, for her potential contributions to the field of optics, photonics or related field.   

McEwen is a rising fourth-year undergraduate at Berkeley Physics pursuing a double major in physics and computer science. Her research interests focus on predictive control and hardware design of adaptive optics systems for ground-based astronomical observing in the optical and near-infrared. She has worked with groups at Berkeley, Keck II Observatory, NASA JPL, Caltech, and the University of Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy. She is a 2020 Goldwater Scholar, a US national award recognizing undergraduate research work, and hopes to continue her studies in optics with a graduate degree in astrophysics. 

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, an educational not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based science, engineering, and technology. The Society serves more than 255,000 constituents from 183 countries.
