Professor, students involved in energy research at EPA
Dr. Deidra Hodges, an assistant professor in the Electrical Engineering program, and two students spent part of their summer at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Office of Radiation and Indoor Air in Washington, D.C., as participants in the EPA’s Faculty and Student Teams (FaST) research program.
For the student portion of the SPSU team, Dr. Hodges chose Electrical Engineering major Toussaint Moseley based on his classroom performance and Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology major Aaron Love based on his letters of recommendation. Both students expect to graduate in December 2012.
Dr. Hodges, Moseley and Love spent several weeks performing research related to solar and nuclear energy at the EPA and wrapped up their stay in the nation’s capitol by presenting their findings to the agency’s radiation protection division.
