Department of Physics and Astronomy

Prof. D. R. Doty

The student holding the fast nanosecond neutron detector is Francis Appiah. He has extended family in New York but his mother lives in Ghana, West Africa. When Francis was in high school he lived in a palace of an Ashanti King.






That experience is perhaps why he is now the president of the African Student Organization at CSUN. He is a precise and careful student as can be seen because few are trusted by the Professor to hold the fragile and expensive detectors. Upon graduation Mr. Appiah will continue graduate studies and then return to Ghana to share his expertise with his ancient home and fellow countrymen..
