BATON ROUGE, La —
Twelve Southern University students and faculty members are conducting research this summer at nationally recognized science facilities, including Los Alamos National Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory and Fermi National Laboratory.
The students and faculty are part of the Louis Stokes Louisiana Alliance for Minority Participation’s (LAMP) Faculty and Student Teams Program (FaST).
FaST is a cooperative effort between the Department of Energy’s Office of Science and the National Science Foundation. FaST provides opportunities for college professors and students to participate in a 10-week immersion experience in a research environment at a DOE Laboratory.
The program fosters a professional relationship between the faculty, students, and laboratory investigators. The FaST program supports teams comprised of one faculty member, and up to 3 undergraduate students, who undertake hands-on research at DOE National Laboratories during the summer months.
The following is a list of the SU faculty and students participating in research projects.
Electrical Engineering faculty member Dr. Elhag Shaban and senior electrical engineering major Sylva-Sennette Daishaun are at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in Brookhaven, N.Y.
Biology faculty member Dr. Yetunde Ogunkoya is at Brookhaven, along with senior biology majors Amber Jarrell and Kiara Henderson.
Civil Engineering faculty member Dr. Riyadh Al-Raoush is at Los Alamos National Laboratory in Los Alamos, N.M., with junior civil engineering and environmental engineering major LeChell Rush, junior civil engineering major Jonathan Striblet and junior mechanical engineering major Myles Floyd.
Physics faculty member Dr. Terrence Reese is at Fermi National Laboratory in Chicago, Ill., with senior physics major Jonathan Parker and junior physics major Polite Stewart, Jr.
