Dr. John Goodpaster teaches a graduate student how to use a microspectrophotometer instrument

FIS M.S. (Thesis) Graduate Students

Since 2009, the FIS M.S. Program has graduated over 20 thesis M.S. students. These students have completed thesis research with one or more FIS advisors. Our students have appeared more than 15 times as co-authors on articles in peer-reviewed journals. FIS students have generated several published abstracts and they have presented their results at numerous local, state, national and international scientific conferences.
