Joshua Miller ’21 Selected for Prestigious Internship

Joshua Miller ’21, a physics and math double major, was selected for the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship Program. This highly competitive program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy national labs, enables undergraduates to conduct research with some of the most talented scientists in the world. Miller will work on nuclear physics research this summer at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Virginia.

Dr. Pitonyak and Student-Researcher Present at National Conference

Dr. Daniel Pitonyak, assistant professor of physics, and Joshua Miller ’21, physics and mathematics, presented their summer research, funded by an Edward H. and Jeanne Donlevy Arnold Grant, at the American Physical Society Division of Nuclear Physics Conference in Virginia Oct. 14. Pitonyak presented “Global Analysis of Quark-Gluon Correlations in Hadrons,” and Miller gave a poster presentation, “3-Dimensional Hadronic Structure from Transverse-Spin Observables in High-Energy Collisions.” Their research is focused on better understanding the structure of the proton and the most fundamental pieces of matter that compose it.

Dr. Veenhuizen and Student-Researchers Present at International Conference

Dr. Keith Veenhuizen, assistant professor of physics, Collin Barker ’19, and Joshua Miller ’21 presented results of their research at the 25th International Congress on Glass in Boston, Mass., in June. Veenhuizen presented “Ferroelectric domain engineering of lithium niobate single crystal confined in glass.” Barker and Miller gave a poster presentation on “Laser-induced crystallization and reduction of copper-doped lithium niobosilicate glass.” The International Congress on Glass meets every three years and brings together experts in the field of glass science and technology from around the world. Speakers from five continents presented at this year’s conference.
