Two P-A graduate students selected for U.S. DoE program

Two Michigan State University Physics & Astronomy graduate students – Crispin Contreras-Martinez and Roy Ready – were among 52 graduate students from across the nation selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for its 2017 Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program.

The DOE SCGSR Program was established to advance a graduate student’s doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources and capabilities available at DOE laboratories. The award will support Contreras-Martinez and Ready for up to one year of research under the supervision of a DOE laboratory scientist.

Contreras-Martinez and Ready are members of different research teams at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory.
