Physics Alumni Spotlight

Our recent alumni are doing great things!


Zach B. (2018) is a graduate student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Rochester. He is conducting plasma physics research at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics. Zach receives financial support for his studies and his living expenses through an internal LLE fellowship, the Horton Fellowship. He plans to earn a Ph.D. in experimental plasma physics. As a physics major, Zach carried out undergraduate research at the Low Energy Ion Facility at Geneseo.
Lexi I. (2018) is a graduate student in Astrophysical Sciences and Technology and Imaging Science at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Her research is focused on detectors and instrumentation for astronomical imaging. She plans to earn a M.S. in Imaging Science and Ph.D. in Astrophysics. Lexi receives financial support for her studies and living expenses. While at Geneseo, Lexi was an undergraduate researcher, supplemental instructor, and undergraduate lab instructor in astronomy.
Gunnar B. (2019) is a graduate student in the Institute for Structure and Nuclear Astrophysics at Notre Dame University. He receives financial support for his studies and living expenses. While at Geneseo, Gunnar was an undergraduate researcher in nuclear physics, working at our 1.7 MV tandem Pelletron Accelerator Lab.
Julia B. (2018) is a physics teacher at Webster Schroeder High School in Webster, where she teaches regents and AP 1 physics. Julia received her NYS Physics Certification with a General Science Extension through the Adolescence Education program as a physics major at Geneseo. While at Geneseo, Julia was an undergraduate lab instructor, tutor, and supplemental instructor for the physics department.
Mollie B. (2015) recently completed her masters degree in Mechanical Engineering from Northeastern University. Formerly a Research Engineer at Massachusetts General Hospital, she is now a Development Engineer at a medical device startup company, Seventh Sense Biosystems. As a Geneseo undergraduate, Mollie was part of a team that measured the cross section for the 12C(n,2n)11C reaction.
