Seeing Double: Student Research Presented at Two Conferences

[Graduating senior Corwin Hoover and faculty mentor Dr. Kristine Larsen]

Who says you can’t be in two places at the same time? CCSU senior Corwin Hoover’s research on variable stars was presented simultaneously at two conferences on May 6, 2016. While Corwin, an Earth Science – Astronomy concentration major, was presenting his work at the CCSU Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Day, his faculty mentor, Dr. Kristine Larsen, was over a 1000 miles away, presenting Corwin’s research to the American Association of Variable Star Observers in St. Louis, MO. Corwin’s research was an investigation into the misclassification of members of a particular class of variable stars (stars that vary in brightness).

Congratulations to Corwin as he graduates from CCSU!
