Deval has spent the entirety of his Undergraduate career working in the Massive Star Group at the University of Delaware under the supervision of Dr. Stan Owocki of the Bartol Research Institute. After finishing his studies, Deval plans to pursue research in Quantum Cosmology, studying the very beginnings of our Universe. He also wants to plan initiatives to improve STEM education at all levels in order to build a brighter future for the world.
