People: Students

Students studying Astronomy, Planetary Science, or Astrobiology at Cal Poly Pomona and other CSUs or nearby Community Colleges in the CAMPARE program are given the opportunity to participate in research as part of their training. Projects range from studying the infrared variability of planet-forming disks around young stars, to the study of the morphology of Martian dunes, to helping build a radio telescope that is searching for signals from extraterrestrial civilizations (seriously!). Below are stories of some of the students who have participated in such research:
