Nirag Kadakia receives Department of Physics Graduate Teaching Award

Nirag Kadakia receives Department of Physics Graduate Teaching Award Nirag Kadakia has received the Department of Physics Graduate Teaching Award, accompanied by a $500 prize. The award is for outstanding and broad contributions to education within the department, including exceptional performance as a teaching assistant and as an instructor, pioneering work on the Learning Glass video Masterclass, and contributions to teaching assistant training.

Mr. Kadakia's commitment to teaching is evident through a stint with Teach for America prior to coming to UCSD, and selection as a Graduate Teaching Scholar at UCSD in the summer of 2015. Evaluations from professors for whom he has served as a teaching assistant are off-scale (in a positive way, of course!), and student evaluations are likewise impressively glowing.
