She gave up her thesis from home, got ten and became a “virtual graduate”

In full social isolation for coronavirus, an astronomy student defended her graduate thesis from home and became the first “virtual graduate” of the National University of La Plata.

As reported from the study house, the student, Maria Camila Rodríguez, expected to show up on Friday, March 20. However, the day before, President Alberto Fernández announced the start of the quarantine throughout the country and the date had to be postponed.

“They were days of great uncertainty. However, the response by the Faculty and the Jury so that the defense of the final work could be carried out virtually was immediate, and in just three days everything was organized,” explained the student. This is how it was authorized to be remotely evaluated through the Zoom platform: an opportunity that was not missed.

“Congratulations María Camila Rodríguez! In times of mandatory isolation is the first virtual graduate of the #UNLP. Rating 10 for their Bachelor thesis in Astronomy “, they celebrated on Twitter from the institution.

On the experience, the young woman detailed: “It was rare, because there was no ritual of a received; physically neither my family nor my friends were there. They did not throw things at me nor did I visit the center of La Plata. I was also able to enjoy it because the accompaniment was virtual. “

The Bachelor thesis in Astronomy is titled “Hybrid stars with sequential phase transitions and their effects on oscillation frequencies”, and was carried out under the direction of Ignacio Ranea Sandoval and the co-direction of Mauro Mariani. Meanwhile, the jury that evaluated it was made up of Dr. Ignacio Ranea Sandoval; Dr. Alejandro Córsico and Dr. Marcelo Miller Bertolami.

According to the UNLP, in a few days the same methodology will be used to also evaluate 11 astronomy doctoral students, who will defend their thesis by videoconference.
