COS student earns Goldwater Scholarship

A student at the University of Central Florida has been awarded a prestigious scholarship that will help fund his education as he works toward a career in science and math.

Christopher Frye has been named a 2012 Barry M. Goldwater Scholar.

Frye is a double-major in Physics and Mathematics. Since Fall 2010 he has performed independent research in theoretical physics under the supervision of Costas Efthimiou, an associate professor of Physics.

This summer Frye will travel to Switzerland to participate in a Research Experience for Undergraduates at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.

He hopes to pursue a Ph.D. in Mathematical Physics with a specialization in high-energy theory, conduct research in string theory and eventually teach at the university level.
