Luke Begley

Undergraduate, Class of 2022 - Physics
Senior Thesis, Junior Project

Luke Begley finished his undergraduate degree in the Physics department pursuing certificates in Applications of Computing and Statistics & Machine Learning. His research interests primarily include the intersections between physics, computation, and data analytics. For his fall junior research project, he worked under the guidance of Dr. Riddhi Bandyopadhyay and Professor David McComas studying the effects of kinetic microinstabilities on proton temperature anisotropy in the magnetosheath of Jupiter. For his Senior Thesis, he worked with Dr. Jamey Szalay on analyzing water-group ions in Jupiter's magnetosphere from Europa.
