KU QuarkNet Summer Research

Four years ago in the summer of 2013 I began a summer job that quickly became a highlight of my year. Through my involvement in QuarkNet, I found that the University of Kansas QuarkNet center has a summer research program, and they were hiring a summer research teacher.

Since then, I have had the wonderful experience of helping to run the seven-week program, taking students to visit Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) near Chicago, and helping students with their research and projects as diverse as microwave radio wave behavior in sand and ice, analyzing CMS data in ROOT, and building research hardware with microcontrollers. Some in multiple years have worked on CMS detector hardware and hardware analysis.

I’ve put together a collection of research abstracts and student research talks. Currently, the abstracts include 2013-2016, and the talks include 2014-2017. I’ll be adding the 2017 abstracts within a few days, and I hope to find the 2013 presentation videos to add to the YouTube playlist soon.
