Demetrios Papakostas

Senior Physics major, Demetrios Papakostas, used his VURF travel grant to present his research at the Mid-Atlantic Physics Section annual meeting.

On his experience:  

In November of 2017, I traveled to the Mid-Atlantic Physics Section annual meeting.  I attended the conference with several other students from the physics and astrophysics department, as well as my advisor from the summer, Dr. Jeremy Carlo.  At the conference, we met several prominent physicists, and had the opportunity to meaningfully interact with them.  We also were able to visit different talks in different fields, a helpful insight into the work of researchers.  Finally, I presented my work at a poster session, which allowed the possibility to see research in other areas as well as explaining my research to people who understand it, which was good practice. 

Overall, the weekend was a fun experience and I am grateful to CRF for the funding.
