Joshua Miller ’21, physics and mathematics, presented “AI for Uncertainty Quantification in QCD Analysis” on July 31. The presentation evolved from his research conducted as part of the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship Program, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. During his summer 2020 internship, Miller worked with physicists from the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Newport News, Va.
