2018 Student Research Conference

The 48th Annual WKU Student Research Conference will take place on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at the Downing Student Union.  

Our very own Alex Henson was featured in this week's View From The Hill in an episode about the research conference.  Alex talks about his work in Dr. Sanju Gupta's laboratory that he will present on at the conference.

A listing of presentations by physics and astronomy students is presented below.  For additional information see the Student Research Conference website.
