These students are co-authors on 10 journal articles and 3 refereed conference proceedings. They have presented 39 posters and 16 oral talks at scientific meetings around the country, receiving 5 special prizes. Between them, they have collected 14 Rubendall awards, 4 Pelham awards and 2 Loh scholarships (our department’s highest student honors) as well as 2 awards from the Society of Physics Students. They have participated in 2 workshops and 16 internships or Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs) at institutions in the USA, Germany and The Netherlands. Eight are or have been supported by summer research grants from the Fisher College of Science and Mathematics and the Maryland Space Grant Consortium. One was interviewed on the Smithsonian television channel, another starred in a NASA outreach video, and three contributed to the discovery of gravitational waves that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics.
