Trey is entering his fourth year of graduate school in the Department of Astronomy. His research focuses on the structure of our home Galaxy, the Milky Way. Trey uses the largest and most sensitive radio telescopes in the world, including the National Radio Astronomy Observatory Green Bank Telescope, the Jansky Very Large Array, the Arecibo Telescope, and the Australia Telescope Compact Array to locate massive star forming regions. He uses these regions to trace out the structure of our Galaxy.
In the past year, Trey was a lead- or co-author on more than a dozen published scientific articles and presentation abstracts. He was also recognized for several prestigious awards, including the Metro-Washington Chapter of Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS) Foundation Scholarship, the Virginia Space Grant Consortium Graduate Research Fellowship, the Raven Society Fellowship, and the Laurence W. Fredrick Teaching Assistant Award.
