Congratulations to Pepper Rhodes for a fantastic presentation at the Young Scholars Senior Summit Showcase! The YSSS program hosts extremely talented high school students that have been selected as Jack Kent Cooke Foundation scholars to participate in a three-week research mentoring program at UConn. Pepper has investigated the components and structure of galaxy clusters using cosmological simulations!
