Between them, they have collected 11 Rubendall awards and 4 Pelham awards (our department’s highest student honors) as well as 2 awards from the Society of Physics Students. They have received 3 research grants for their work at Towson University and participated in 14 Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs) or similar internships at institutions in the USA, Germany and The Netherlands.
