Carnegie Summer Scholars Anne Davis (Caltech), Keenan Brownsberger (Whitworth University), and Reed Mershon (University of Chicago) gave presentations on their research at Carnegie’s Broad Branch Road campus on August 14:  

  • Anne Davis: Phase transitions in silicon quantum dots for solar energy conversion
  • Keenan Brownsberger: Synthesis of palladium hydrides at high pressure
  • Reed Mershon: The role of oxygen fugacity in elemental fractionation between basaltic and sulfidic liquids

The three students have completed their summer projects and have returned to their home universities for their final year.  Each of the students will be presenting the results of their summer’s research at national meetings during the upcoming academic year.
