“THANK YOU for supporting my first year at TAMS.TAMS has been a rewarding experience filled with unlimited opportunities to grow. I have been exposed to many challenging and exciting opportunities throughout the 2015-2016 school year. In addition to already completing my freshman year of college, I have become involved in particle accelerator physics research. In January I joined the Ion Beam Modification and Analysis Laboratory of the Physics Department at UNT, under Dr. Duncan Weathers, Ph. D. In Dr. Weather’s research lab I have the opportunity to come in and work collaboratively with doctorate students and professional faculty in the physics department, and I will also be conducting independent research over the Summer of 2016, investigating the surface composition of candidate alloys for use in the liquid metal ion sources of particle accelerators. Thank you again for the support.”
