			MacArthur Research Students Shine Amid Pandemic
		 - image001
Neither the summer nor the pandemic could slow down MacArthur's science research students. Emily Zhang (Class of 2021) spent her summer working remotely at the Garcia Center for Polymers at Engineered Interfaces at Stony Brook University. During her experience she carried out research, with students from around the country, on graphene oxide coated anion exchange membrane fuel cells. On September 23, 2020, Emily's abstract "Effect of pH on the shear modulus of anion exchange membranes" was accepted to the Materials Research Society Annual Conference. In addition to this, she was a member of a group that has prepared an abstract regarding ethical considerations in response to COVID19. Summer Looney (Class of 2022) was officially notified of the publication of her peer reviewed research paper "Public Awareness and Support of Town of Hempstead Preserves and Nature Areas." The research was initiated as a project for the Long Island Youth Summit and was subsequently presented at the Association of American Geographers Conference. Finally, Natalia Pszeniczny (Class of 2023) was selected as a 2020 Young Investigators Writing Competition Finalist and winner of the Environmental Science category. Her work will be published in the Fall 2020 Stony Brook Young Investigators Review.
