Summer Centered: Sam Ditkovsky '20 Explores the Cosmos

The Koshland Integrated Natural Sciences Center supported astrophysics major Sam Ditkovsky's summer research on isocurvature perturbations, cosmic disturbances caused by an alteration in the ratio of the particles that comprise the fabric of the universe. The rising senior did his work at the University of Toronto’s Dunlap Institute and on Haverford’s campus.
