Crider presents research at astronomy conference

Anthony Crider, assistant professor of physics, is presenting his recent research at an international astrophysics conference in Washington, D.C., this week. Supported by an Elon University Faculty Research and Development grant, Crider’s work involved a search for gamma ray pulsations from distant stars with very large magnetic fields. The meeting, “Gamma Ray Bursts in the Swift Era,” is being hosted by NASA’s Office for Space Sciences, Goddard Space Flight Center and the University of Maryland.
