Zach Newman, a junior with a double major in geological sciences and physics, is one of 12 students nationwide chosen to participate in the REU program at the Carnegie Institution of Washington, where he will perform experiments to determine diffusion rates in lower-mantle minerals at ultra-high pressures and temperatures.
Julianne (Annie) Griswold, a double major in geological sciences and environmental studies—is one of 15 students nationwide accepted to the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Summer Institute on Atmospheric, Biospheric, Hydrospheric, and Solar and Space Plasma Sciences for 2007. She will conduct research on global climate change.
Graduate student Katherine Crispin was awarded a first prize for her poster at the 2007 Research ShowCase entitled Constraints on the Dynamics of Iron Snow in the Core of Ganymede.
