Undergraduate Vedant Chandra has received the Chambliss Student Poster Award from the American Astronomical Society for his digital iPoster on star formation in nearby dwarf galaxies using color-magnitude diagrams. Chandra conducted the research outlined in the iPoster with Dr. Mario Gennaro at the Space Telescope Science Institute. In the iPoster, Chandra demonstrated how the novel techniques and tools he developed with Gennaro are an improvement over past methods by using mock James Webb Space Telescope data.
