Congratulations to our Physics and Mathematics senior Chance Baggett 24’ for being named a 2023-24 Astronaut Scholar by the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF). Under the mentorship of Professor Christian Santangelo, Chance’s research, which focuses on theoretical self-folding origami, helps shed light on how certain physical materials function.

“Chance’s commitment to a research career, and his pursuit of research opportunities in mathematics and physics since his first year at SU, made him an excellent candidate for the Astronaut Scholarship,” says Jolynn Parker, director of the Center for Fellowship and Scholarship Advising (CFSA). “We’re delighted this award will support him in the work he aims to do in soft matter physics.”
