On August 1, three CSG students presented the results of their work in the CSG-OSU Summer Research Internship Program in a symposium held on OSU's campus.

This summer, three students from the Columbus School for Girls participated in the CSG-OSU Summer Research Internship Program in the labs of The Ohio State University. Funding of this program was also made possible with support from The Ohio State University’s College of Engineering, and from the Center for Automotive Engineering. 

Since 2006, over 60 CSG girls have worked closely with faculty and graduate students in engineering and science labs, performing hands-on research as part of this paid summer internship. This year’s students (Maya Howard ’23, Anya Nguyen ’23, and Lina Jeffers ’23), presented the results of their work in a symposium held on OSU's campus on August 1.

Nguyen worked in Dr. Len Brillson’s laboratory in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Her research involved the use of cathodoluminescence techniques to characterize the properties of the Aluminum Scandium Nitride (AlScN) semiconductors.

Howard worked under the guidance of Dr. Devina Purmessur in the Spine Research Institute, a Biomedical Engineering research group that specializes in studying low back pain. This summer, Howard used the technique of immunohistochemistry (IHC) to quantify the number of immunopositive cells in both K9 DRG and mouse retinas.

Lina Jeffers’ internship was at the Center for Automotive Research under the leadership of Dr. Giorgio Rizzoni, from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Jeffers worked on the SAE AutoDrive Challenge II project with Research Associate Professor Qadeer Ahmed. As part of her work, Lina worked on message-based protocols for Controller Area Networks (CAN).
