Summer undergraduate researchers Gabriel Patenotte (left) and Willa Dworschack (right) are hard at work! Gabriel is developing microfluidic chips for picoliter NMR experiments while Willa is constructing a remote-control interface for an astro-comb system soon to be deployed at an exoplanet-hunting telescope in the Canary Islands.
