Research Opportunities

Research plays an integral role in the culture of the physics department. Our faculty are involved in cutting-edge research in five main areas. From modeling cloud formation and behavior in turbulent upper-level atmospheric conditions to detecting diseases through laser analysis of breath samples, both undergraduate and graduate students have many opportunities to contribute to exciting research projects.
