Missy Gaddy '14 spent the summer at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center restoring and analyzing data from the Lunar Ejecta and Meteorites (LEAM) Experiment on Apollo 17.
Tom Wood '13 interned with a group of stock traders this summer at BGC (Barclay's Global Corp.) in Canary Wharf, London. Wood was assigned to the Middle East, Latin America, and Africa Desk. "My main job was to write tickets that go to different banks when a trade is made.... It was a very long day working from 7am until 5pm, but very rewarding if lots of trades were made."
Throughout August, Philip Coffey '14 (left) participated in a project in Costa Rica studying how mantled howler monkeys respond to temperature variation throughout their habitats. The project has implications for how human thermoregulatory adaptations evolved. Coffey's work in the project involved catching monkeys, participating in minor surgeries to implant temperature recording devices under their skin, and observing monkey behaviors. The research project is a collaboration of researchers from Ohio University, Duke University, High Point University and Northeast Ohio Medical University, where Dr. Chris Vinyard '92 (right) is an assistant professor.
