Prof. Yicheng Guo is the recipient of the prestigious Ann Covington Award. Lauryn Williams, an undergraduate student who conducted research with prof. Guo, nominated him for the award.
This prestigious award honors faculty and staff who continue Ann Convington's legacy of student mentorship. Those contributions may have come in the form of mentorship with scholarly research or creative endeavors, counsel toward professional aspirations, guidance in developing a fellowship application, and/or other activities that supported an undergraduate in seeking one or more nationally competitive fellowships.
Lauryn Williams, under the mentorship of prof. Guo, applied and was awarded the much coveted NSF-GRF fellowship. She will continue her graduate studies in Astronomy at the University of Washington.
