All of the UCSD-Morehouse-Spelman Bridge scholars were on present and presenting at the 2015 National Society of Black Physicists (NSBP) National Meeting, February 25-28 in Baltimore, MD. This Annual Conference brings together a broad range of experts in multiple fields of physics (astronomy, astrophysics, biophysics, condensed matter and materials, physics, high energy, etc.), and is the largest academic meeting of minority physicists in the United States. It is co-organized in partnership with Associated Universities, Inc. and co-sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
The UCSD-Morehouse Physics Bridge program has selected its first class of Bridge Scholars for 2014. They are (from left to right): Christian Aganze (2nd year, Physics/Electrical Engineering), Jeremy Ariche (2nd year, Physics), Saidou N’gaide’ (2nd year, Applied Physics/Aerospace Engineering), Julian Pilate-Hutcherson (3rd year, Applied Physics/Civil Engineering) and Jarrhett Butler (4th year, Applied Physics/Nuclear Engineering). Each of these students will be paired with one the UCSD faculty mentors for an 8-week research position and graduate preparation training.
