My name is Cody Lamarche, and I am a first-year Astronomy graduate student here at Cornell. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Vermont, where I received B.S. degrees in both Physics and Mathematics. While there, I conducted research under the guidance of Dr. Madalina Furis, in the field of experimental condensed-matter physics. Using optics, we probed the electronic properties of organic semiconductor thin-films, which may, one day, replace silicon as the material of choice in electronic devices.

Here at Cornell, I hope to move into instrumentation, applying my optics background to astronomy. I am also a teaching assistant for Astronomy 1102 this spring.
