Student aims for the stars in research, athletics

by Alexander D. Chapin

Linda Kuenzi is a pole vaulter and aerospace engineering student researcher at Arizona State University. When she's not competing with ASU's track and field team, she's working in the lab with Christopher Groppi, a professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration. Their research focuses on building better cameras to capture images of the cosmos. In addition to receiving an "Outstanding Honors Thesis" award from ASU's School for the Engineering of Matter, Transport, and Energy, Kuenzi made the 2013 and 2014 lists for the Pac-12's All Academic Track and Field Team.
