Wasiu Erinoso and Bereket Mamo successfully defend Masters theses
The Department of Physics and Astronomy extends hearty congratulations to Masters students Wasiu Erinoso and Bereket Mamo, both of who successfully defended their Master's theses this summer and will formally graduate this Fall.
On July 9 2020, Wasiu Erinoso successfully defended his work "Evaluation of the Activity of Zn-65 Isotope and Radiation Dose Delivered to Drosphila Melanogaster". This work was supervised by Dr. Andrew Roberts.
On August 19, 2020, Bereket Mamo successfully defended his work "A Photometric Study of the South Polar Terrain of Enceladus". This work was supervised by Dr. Paul Eskridge.
Traditionally, the thesis defense provides a singular opportunity for Master's students to present the results of the research they have completed during their time at MNSU to the broader academic community. Informally, these events also provide the community the opportunity to "send off" the students with warm wishes and congratulations. Regrettably, the US pandemic prevented individuals from attending in person and Wasiu and Bereket were the first and second students from the department to defend their theses entirely virtually. The Department faculty, students, and staff all wish these students the best of luck in their future endeavors!
