Physics major Patrick Fasano

Physics major Patrick Fasano, a rising sophomore at the University of Notre Dame, is spending his summer as an intern at the Cosmic Ray Division (CRD) of the Yeraven Physics Institute in Yerevan, Armenia.

For 10 weeks, Fasano will assist with upgrades and improvements to the division’s data storage and processing software, as well as learning about data analysis of Thunderstorm Ground Enhancements, a newly discovered high energy phenomena in the terrestrial atmosphere.
