Liang Yu (Astronomy & Physics major working with Daisuke Nagai) has been selected as a junior fellow in the Science, Technology and Research Scholars (STARS) program.  Starting January 2013, the STARS program will support Ms. Yu’s research entitled “The Evolution of the Sunyaev-Zel’dovich Effect Scaling Relation of Galaxy Clusters” throughout her time at Yale (including summer stipend).

Administered by the Yale College Dean’s Office, the STARS program is designed to support women, minority, economically underprivileged, and other historically underrepresented students in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics.  This program will provide undergraduates an opportunity and financial support to combine course-based study, research, mentorship, networking, and career planning in the fields of science and technology.
