Loyola at a Glance

Physics major lands summer research spot at Columbia University

April 12, 2013

This summer, Loyola University New Orleans physics senior William Duhe will get a look inside black holes, supernova remnants and more deep space phenomena with the help of high-powered technologies used at an observatory in southern Arizona. Duhe has been accepted into the prestigious Nexis Summer Research Program for Undergraduates at Columbia University, a program supported by the National Science Foundation.

Duhe will be working with the VERITAS array south of Tuscon, Ariz., and will join in the study of the origins of galactic cosmic rays—the energetic charged particles that bombard the earth.
