The summer grind

My summer started on the 5th of May in St. Louis at Washington University Medical School. The previous Friday, I jumped in my car after finals and drove east along I-70, visiting friends in Denver, and ending up in St. Louis on Sunday. I grew up in St. Louis and my two brothers live in St. Charles County. My father is buried in St. Charles. Even though my notion of home has changed, traveling back to Missouri still feels like I am coming home.

This is the second summer that I have been invited to conduct research in a radiochemistry group led by Dr. Suzanne Lapi. This summer, I am joining the group as a Nuclear Science and Security Consortium summer research fellow.

VIDEO: A day in the life of Luke

What is it like to be a student at Fort Lewis College? In our "Day in the life" series, we'll explore student life at FLC through the eyes of our students. In this episode, we meet Luke, an engineering major who is involved in all things academic. On a typical day, Luke conducts research in the physics lab, does homework in the Native American Center, goes to a professor’s office hours, eats lunch on campus at The Rocket Grille, and oversees a meeting of the American Indian Science & Engineering Society!

Combating the Varroa Destructor Mite

This past summer I had the opportunity, through the Fort Lewis College Chemistry department, to conduct innovative research on combating this pest.
