IC Honors Summer Student Spotlight: Madison Mangano

Meet Madison, a rising senior Physics major!

10358560_10206735425083514_4412821114529086646_nMadison is spending her summer right here in Ithaca, working on completing her senior thesis research. She’s working with a program that turns spectral data (graphs of the light of stars) into sounds so they can reach a wider range of audiences.

“It involves understanding it myself as well as building other programs that will allow others to understand how it works. I hope to be able to make edits to the sounds the program puts out as well as make it a bit more graphically exciting in the future.”

Madison’s favorite part of the Honors program is the community it fosters and the friendships it makes!

“We’re a bunch of kids who want to actually make a difference, and we improve ourselves and the world around us in order to do that.”

What are you doing this summer? Honors wants to know!
