Maria Huey - Maria is a sophomore physics major at Kenyon College. She is from Cincinnati, Ohio and is in charge of our visualization department, converting our output to HDF5 files, making plots and movies.

Sarah Murphree (Maggie) - Maggie is a Senior Physics major from Meadville, Pennsylvania. She is working on modeling large-scale structure by simulating the evolution of axion dark matter as a scalar field. This picture uses the Schroedinger-Poisson equation instead of the Klein-Gordon.

Gwyneth Phillips - Gwyneth is a Junior at Kenyon College from Wheaton, Illinois. Right now, she is investigating the behavior of dark matter at the galactic scale by using Schrodinger GABE with modified boundary conditions.

Rachel Nguyen - Rachel is a Senior at Kenyon College from New Orleans, Louisiana. She is researching the generation of primordial black holes after inflation using a fully relativistic version of GABE.

Patrick Shaw - Patrick is a Senior at Kenyon College from Pottstown, Pennsylvania. He is investigating dark energy in axiverse models using CUDA enabled GABE.
