Physics Students Win Provost's Showcase Awards

Wednesday, April 9, 2008

The Physics Department congratulates two of our physics students, who each took third place in NJIT's 4th Annual Provost's Showcase. Stephanie Milczarski won the third-place undergraduate award for her poster entitled "Characterization of a Device to Measure Eye Pressure Through the Eyelid."  This is work that she did with her advisor, Prof. Gordon Thomas of the Physics Department.

 Sreeya Sreevatsa also won third place in the graduate category, for her poster "Control of Surface Chemistry by Electronic Structures." with her ECE advisor Haim Grebel.
