Three Physics Majors Accepted Into Summer Research Programs

Three physics majors have been accepted into summer research programs

Jocelyn Hoye ’15 received one of eleven fellowships given out by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine, which she has chosen to use to do summer work with a group doing medical physics (Radiation Oncology) at the University of California — San Francisco.  Only 20% of the applicants were awarded fellowships, and each winner got to chose the research program in which they wanted to participate. The AAPM is the governing body of all of the medical physics      programs in Canada and they United States.

Emily Clark ’15 was admitted to a summer program funded by the National Science Foundation called the “Research Experience for Undergraduates” (REU).  Emily will be spending the summer working at Indiana University in a group that studies dark matter in astrophysics.

Andrew Briggs ’15 won one of the prestigious “Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships” (SURF) at the National Institute for Science and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg MD.  He will be working in the Physical Measurements Laboratory.
