Current Research

Jason is currently a new graduate student in the University of Connecticut Physics department, so as such he hase not yet chosen a research advisor and started his primary research towards PhD dissertation and freedom. Currently he is still working with Dr Richard Krantz, on the calculation of Brillouin zones for Maximally Even Supercells.

Vögel Education

Jason recieved a B.S in Physics with a minor in Mathematics with honors from the Metropolitan State College of Denver. Currently He is a PhD Graduate student at the University of Connecticut Physics Department.
