Gayle Thayer received her Ph.D. degree in September, 2001. Her dissertation title was "The Role of Stress in Thin Alloy Films: A Scanning Tunneling Microscopy Investigation of CoAg/Ru(0001)."
She won the prestigious Wayne B. Nottingham Prize at the Physical Electronics Conference, Taos, NM, June 11-13, 2001, for best surface science thesis presented at the conference.
She is now a Staff Scientist at Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
