ASU student selected to participate in 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

ASU graduate student Sean Seyler was selected to attend the 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Lindau, Germany.

Seyler received his bachelor's in 2011 and master's in engineering physics in 2012 from Cornell University. He joined Beckstein Lab at Arizona State University in fall 2012 to pursue his doctorate in physics. Outside the immediate scope of his research, Seyler is interested in nonequilibrium statistical physics and the thermodynamics of nanoscale systems.

At the annual Lindau meetings, about 30-40 Nobel laureates convene to meet the next generation of leading scientists: undergraduates, doctoral students and post-doc researchers from all over the world. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings foster the exchange among scientists of different generations, cultures, and disciplines. The theme of the 66th meeting in 2016 is physics.

In a nationwide competition, Seyler was selected to represent ASU amongst the 55 members of the U.S. delegation of young researchers. He will spend six days at the beautiful Lake Constance in the Alps of southern Germany, talking science with some of the best and brightest in the field.
