Alex is currently pursuing graduate study in physics at Auburn.  After careful reflection, Alex chose an offer from the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) program.  Last year, NDSEG made 69 awards from an applicant pool of 3,100, so the competition is fierce. “I know that there were so many amazing applicants and it is truly an honor that they would choose me,” Alex wrote to Dr. Gregory.  Congratulations, Alex.
