Summary: SPECIAL EXPERIENCES FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS
Graduate students work on almost all the research projects at iQUEST. The projects
make it possible for them to work towards their PhD theses. They have written numerous
research papers, and have had the opportunity to present their work at domestic and
international conferences. They are also involved in mentoring undergraduate students
and they participate in summer programs for both undergraduates and high school
students.

John Royer, (now a graduate student at the University of Chicago) did research on
Rayleigh-Benard convection in Dr. Ahler's labs and wrote a Senior Thesis about his
results. He also was first author on a paper in Physical Review E:
Wave-number Selection by Target Patterns and Side Walls in Rayleigh-Benard
Convection, J.R. Royer, P. O'Neill, N. Becker, and G. Ahlers, Phys. Rev. E {\bf 70} ,
