Group photo in the age of COVID-19
This was our best approximation of a group photo this semester – as a Zoom montage! Top L to R: Dane Geddes-Buehre, Karin Crowhurst, Akemi Hinzer. Middle L to R: Hiep Nguyen, Jonny Benson, Imex Aguirre-Cardenas. Bottom L to R: Selin Rostami, Narek Janikian.
Dane and Imex attended CSUPERB in Santa Clara in January, presenting their research. Imex also competed as a finalist for the Nagel Undergraduate Research Award. Although someone else was ultimately named the winner, we are all very proud of Imex and how well he was able to present a complex topic!
