Research Update: Calina Copos, '10

Senior physics major calina_copos_big_cropped.jpgCalina Copos, '10, has been active in research with professor Jerry Gilfoyle, using the Richmond Physics Department’s supercomputer to run computationally intensive simulations to better understand the precision of the experiments they are doing at Jefferson National Laboratory.  The two are part of a team working to measure the distributions of electric charge and magnetic field within a single proton.  Calina traveled to Hawaii this fall to present the results of her work at a national conference of the American Physical Society’s Division of Nuclear Physics.
