Amanda Turbyfill wins Best Poster Award at Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP)

February 2014

Amanda Turbyfill won the Best Poster Award at the Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) held at Louisiana State University in January, presenting the latest research in her work with Professor Dinerstein. The poster, "Investigating Possible Departures from Maxwellian Energy Distributions in Nebulae using High-Resolution Emission-Line Spectra", explains the motivation and method for testing a recently hypothesized solution to an old problem -- inconsistent nebular abundances. Amanda will be continuing the project with Dr. Dinerstein as her senior thesis and hopes to publish their final conclusions.
