GCU Students Explore Research Opportunities Through NASA Space Grants: Angelina Monaco

Angelina Monaco ’23, like many college students, has a lot on her plate. In addition to classes, the nursing student works part time as a patient observer at a local hospital. She even is looking to start a small Bible study with other GCU students. Still, when Eric Rosenberg, Ph.D., GCU assistant professor of applied computing and director of the computer information systems program, invited her to apply for a NASA Space Grant, Angelina was all in.

Dr. Rosenberg sought out Angelina to work with him for a few reasons. She was a standout student in his Making Sense of Data: Statistical Thinking course, earning an A and completing “a very interesting final project” that examined networking with respect to marriage and church attendance rates. In Dr. Rosenberg, Angelina would have an excellent mentor. He has authored three books and dozens of journal articles and is an inventor on 19 U.S. patents. Click here to continue reading.
