Congratulations to Vismaya Pillai who won Best Presentation in the Astrophysics/Cosmology category at CUPC

Mitacs Globalink research intern Vismaya Pillai won the award for "Best Astrophysics or Cosmology Presentation" at the recent Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference for her work with Christine Wilson on measuring dust and gas in galaxies in the Virgo Cluster. Currently a third year undergraduate at the University of Hong Kong, Vismaya focused on looking for evidence that ram pressure from the hot gas that fills the Virgo Cluster produces changes in the gas and dust inside individual galaxies.
