First cohort of A&S Nexus Scholars chosen for summer research positions

April 27, 2022

Sarah Gates ‘25 will help build instruments to study the early universe while Alexis Terracciano ’24 will delve into molecular genetic techniques during their first research experiences this summer. Joaquin Smith ’24 will study the relationship between faith communities and environmental movements, then teach community members a host of sustainable practices. Richard Amaro ’24 will work with survey and assessment data to identify the most effective ways to teach economics to undergraduates.

The four are among the 50 undergrads in the College of Arts & Sciences who will take part in paid research projects in Ithaca this summer with faculty from throughout the College — in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and mathematics— as the first class of Nexus Scholars, a program which is funded entirely through philanthropy.
