Summer Research Opportunities Go to ASU Physics Students
Six Angelo State University physics students have been awarded a variety of prestigious research opportunities at several institutions, including ASU, for summer 2007.
Seniors Morgan Lynch of San Antonio, Kristen Peterson of San Angelo and Marshall Preas of Ballinger, along with junior Daniel Bullock of San Antonio, will each receive research stipends from the National Science Foundation through the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. Lynch will be working at Vanderbilt, Bullock at Texas Tech, and Peterson and Preas at ASU.
During the REU summer programs, which run eight to 10 weeks, students work with research faculty on advanced physics projects. They will then present the results of their work at various professional meetings during the 2007-08 academic year.
Senior Meagan Saldua of Houston has been awarded a national Society of Physics Students internship at the national office of the American Physical Society (APS) in Washington, D.C. She will be working with the APS Physics Quest program to develop physics curriculum and community outreach programs for U.S. high schools.
Junior Jennifer Hendryx of Alpine has been chosen for a physics internship at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. She will be doing research in plasma physics.
