Brandon Lee, a senior majoring in both chemical engineering and physics, received an Outstanding Poster Award during the virtual American Physical Society’s (APS) Division of Plasma Physics 62nd Annual Meeting in November 2020. Only five of these awards were given out to the over 100 undergraduate research posters submitted from across the country.
Lee’s computational research covered the effects of temperature on some bursting characteristics of very small helium bubbles embedded in tungsten surfaces. The goal of this research is to improve modeling forecasts for shielding materials in nuclear fusion reactors.
“I am glad to know that research scientists in my field of choice find my work worthwhile and interesting,” Lee said. “It is an honor to be selected from a group of people doing such awesome work.”
