CITATION FOR PROFESSOR EMLYN HUGHES

For his outstanding ability to teach the mysterious nature of quantum mechanics to a broad audience, as evidenced by the overwhelmingly positive student feedback from Ph2, a core course in sophomore physics. By combining a clear pedagogic style with an entertaining delivery, complete with frequent anecdotes on physics and life, Hughes brings a Feynman-like quality to the teaching of this difficult subject.
