Three physics majors, Lucas Mandacaru Guerra, Rongrong Liu, and Shreya Sriramineni have received Provost’s Undergraduate Research Awards (PURA). The PURA program was created to support and encourage Hopkins undergraduate students to engage in independent research, scholarly and creative projects.
- Lucas Mandacaru Guerra, “Shining light on the Higgs: Study of the Higgs boson couplings to photons at the Large Hadron Collider” under mentor Andrei Gritsan
- Rongrong Liu, “Developing an Automated Algorithm to Solve the Pentagon and Hexagon Polynomial Equations in Topological Quantum Computing” under mentor Yi Li
- Shreya Sriramineni, “Computationally modeling the edge evolution of 2D transition metal dichalcogenide nanocrystals” under mentors Thomas Kempa and Reynolds Dziobek-Garrett
