I'm seeking sophomore and/or junior astronomy/physics students interested in getting involved in an astrophysical hunt for fossil relics of the early universe, particularly, cosmic strings within the halo of our own galaxy. The work will involve building models of the stellar distribution of our galaxy and then evaluating the rate at which relics distort the stellar images. Please email me email@example.com with your background and a resume.
