Two of my undergraduate researchers have secured positions that will further their careers.
- Collin Cunningham, an applied math major, is graduating this semester, and he will be going to the Technical University of Denmark to receive his Masters in mathematical modeling. He has been working on increasing the accuracy of the ray tracing module in Enzo by creating an exact overlap model of the rays on a Cartesian grid.
- Austin Gilbert, a 2nd year physics major, is going to the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) this summer as an REU student, working in Matthew Turk’s Data Exploration Lab. He has been investigating the importance of molecular hydrogen cooling in the first stars and galaxies and has been developing a GUI for yt.
