Byrne Scholar Eliza Crocker ’23 inducted into Phi Beta Kappa
January 14, 2023
Congratulations to Byrne Scholar Eliza Crocker ’23, one of 24 students who were inducted into Dartmouth’s chapter of Phi Beta Kappa in November. Crocker is pursuing a major in Computer Science as well as a minor in Mathematics. With support from Byrne funds, she spent winter term ’21 conducting a research assistantship under the guidance of Professor John Voight, learning about data collection and analysis techniques to make observations regarding the Galois groups of various Belyi maps; this led to her writing two papers and presenting her research findings to faculty and other undergraduates. During winter ’21 she also participated in our department’s Directed Reading Program with graduate mentor Alex Wilson, and gave her final DRP presentation on the topic of representation theory. Crocker is a member of Dartmouth varsity sailing, and last fall she helped the team win the 2022 Victorian Urn Trophy for the NEISA Fall Women's Championship!
