A team of student researchers supervised by Associate Professor Nadia Zakamska recently authored a study in The Astrophysical Journal describing their new measurement of the white dwarf mass-radius relationship. The paper was led by undergraduate student Vedant Chandra (pictured), graduate students Hsiang-Chih Hwang and Sihao Cheng, and is titled “A Gravitational Redshift Measurement of the White Dwarf Mass-Radius Relationship”. 

The paper was featured on JHU’s Hub, and was the subject of an article in ScienceNews magazine.
