Andrew (Drew) McGee is currently a third year student at Ithaca College. He is pursuing a dual-degree, a Bachelor of Science in Physics, and a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics. He is particularly interested in Astrophysics, and more specifically gravitational waves originating from black holes. Drew has served on the E-Board for Ithaca College's Society of Physics Students Chapter for 2 years, serving the positions of Secretary, Treasurer, and most recently Vice President. In the 2022-23 academic year, Drew will be going on to serve as President of Ithaca College's Chapter. In the Fall of 2019, as a freshman, Drew received a grant from the Society of Physics for his project "Rockets v. Kinematics". Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this project could not be completed. More recently, Drew participated in Ithaca College's Summer Scholar Program, in which he worked a project entitled "Determining Properties of Planet-Forming Stars with a new Computer Model." Drew learned how to use the program RADMC-3D, a radiative transfer simulation that allows planet-forming regions to be modelled.
