WSU senior gains national attention with her research in physics

Ayshea Banes took a passion for astronomy and ran with it, taking any opportunity to immerse herself in her newly chosen field. One of those opportunities occurred this past January, when Banes was chosen to present at the American Astronomical Society’s annual meeting in Seattle.

Banes’ presentation focused on neutrinos, which are particles that rarely interact with any other matter in the universe — specifically her research on the neutrinos coming from the galactic core of the Milky Way galaxy.
