Graduate Research Fellows and Their Work
What kind of research do NSF graduate research fellows (GRFs) do? What is the impact of their work? Below we offer a few examples.
Candidate Gravitational Microlensing Events for Future Direct Lens Imaging
Calen Henderson is an NSF Graduate Research Fellow who recently did research with astronomers in South Korea through NSF's Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide (GROW) effort. In this Ohio State University "Coffee Brief," he discusses a paper for which he is the lead author: "Candidate Gravitational Microlensing Events for Future Direct Lens Imaging." View Video.
