Le'Quardis is a Sophomore Physics/Engineering major, working on a study of CdS thin films. He presented at the Georgia Academy of Science and UWG COSM Research Day conferences. He is planning to transfer to Georgia Tech to pursue his engineering degree. Le'Quardis is a Research Assistant funded through the LSAMP and UWise projects.
Susie just received her B.S. in Physics with a concentration in Engineering, as well as a degree in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech. She worked with Dr. DeSilva to create a solutions-based detector in the IR and UV parts of the spectrum. She is now working for GE Aviation.
Adam earned a B.S. in Physics with a concentration in Secondary Education. His research is on a study of the effect of workshops for Introductory Physics. He presented at the American Association of Physics Teachers, Georgia Academy of Science and the College of Science and Math's Research Day conferences. He is the winner of the Best Presentation at Georgia Academy of Science Conference 2015, Science Education section. He is now employed as a Physical Science teacher at Bremen High School.
Daniel worked on the theoretical aspects of a resonance box which consisted of two speakers and a sheet of glass mounted in a wooden box. When the operational sound frequency matched the natural frequency of the glass, the sheet develops a large vibrational amplitude causing it to rupture. Daniel is now pursuing a Ph.D. at the University of Delaware.
Amanda Mashburn, senior, studied near-infrared spectra of planetary nebulae ( the ejected outer layers of dying low-mass stars) in nearby galaxies called the Magellanic Clouds. She analyzed atomic emission lines to determine the chemical compositions of these objects, and presented the results at the 225th American Astronomical Society meeting in January 2015 in Seattle, WA.
