Caroline Evans is a senior double majoring in Physics and Hispanic Studies at Davidson College for the 2019-2020 school year. As a first-year student, she joined SPS and immediately involved herself in research that summer looking at the intensities, central velocities, and optical depths of spectral lines that included molecular clouds under Dr. Kristen Thompson.
After a junior fall abroad in Chile studying statistical physics and differential equations at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, her junior spring semester was filled with exploring the parameter space of the vector-portal dark matter model with Dr. Brandon Eberly. This past summer, she worked with NASA Marshall Space Flight Center solar physics group to research the magnetic flux properties of solar coronal loops.
This year, she serves as the Vice President for Outreach for Davidson's chapter of SPS and is an active member of its Women in Physics group. Beyond these groups, she mentors a group of those traditionally underrepresented in the sciences (Strategies for Success) and tutors math and physics for the college. When not working in science, Caroline can be seen at her eating house, Turner House, or playing trumpet as Co-President of Pep Band.
