Brice Dorman, the son of Brian and Melody Dorman of Fallbrook, was presented with the 2007 Dean’s Undergraduate Award of Excellence in the field of physics by the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) on November 2.
This award, known as the Michelle Youngers Award, was bestowed upon only five individuals.
Dorman interned at ViaSat, a communications company, where he learned how to use the Linux platform and developed programming skills in Python, an object-orientated language, as well as an assembly language designed for filtering binary strings of data. After his graduation from UCSD, ViaSat employed Dorman.
“I find the subject of light very fascinating, from quantum optics and electrodynamics to relativity,” Dorman said. “Although my passion is for studying physics, I plan to work in industry while I pursue a Masters in electrical engineering.”
A 2003 graduate of Fallbrook High School, Dorman spent his first two years of secondary education at Palomar College. He married Clarice Duerksen in June of 2006. The couple makes their home in Vista.
