"She has been using computer models to try to decide whether we can use the structure of galaxy clusters to reconstruct what the very early universe was like, 1 ' Melott said. "We study things that are like galaxy clusters that form in simula- tions. We see whether we can reliably reconstruct early stages of those simulations." Linn is a National Science Scholar and was a 1994 Summer Undergraduate Research Award recipient to study galaxy clusters. She plans to collaborate with George Rhee, astronomer at University of Nevada-Las Vegas who will be observing the elliptical characteristics of actual galaxy clusters.
