POCA

A Partnership in Observational and Computational Astronomy

Graduate Students

Clemson graduate student S. Hampton completed his MS work on black holes and graduated in May 2013. For his Ph.D. work he chose to change to a subfield of physics that is not available at Clemson and therefore changed institutions.

Clemson graduate student A. Delgado-Navarro has passed her Ph.D. qualifying exams and continues to conduct her research.

SCSU PAARE undergraduate Charles Kurgatt graduated from SCSU with his B.S. in physics with astronomy option in May 2013. He entered the MS program in Engineering Physics at Appalachain State University in the fall of 2013. While this is not a graduate degree in astronomy, it is in a closely related field.

Undergraduates

SCSU PAARE undergraduate C. Kurgatt graduated with his B.S. in physics with astronomy option in May 2013.

Two SCSU PAARE undergraduates C. Laursen and B. Pugh will graduate with their B.S. in physics with astronomy option in May 2014.

SCSU PAARE undergraduate J. Eleby will graduate with her B.S. in physics with astronomy option in December 2014.

Co-PI Cash conducted Kepler research with physics undergraduate J. Eleby and computer science undergraduate S. Rivers in 2013. They presented their results at the January 2014 AAS meeting.

Co-PI Smith worked with physics major S. Pohkrel on web-based cosmology activites in RPPR.
