Associate Zone CouncilorEmail:
I am a junior physics major at Rhodes College with a minor in mathematics. I joined SPS as a second-semester first-year and currently serve as our demo chair. I am very passionate about making physics accessible and love doing demonstrations during our biweekly chapter meetings. I also work in a physics research lab under Dr. Bentley Burnham, designing circuitry for RHOKSAT, our nanosatellite project. RHOKSAT has given me a chance to help solve challenging engineering problems at a college without an engineering department. I have also helped our chapter receive two SPS grants: the Marsh White Award and the Chapter Research Award. I have also been heavily involved in our community outreach, including helping with our chapter’s biggest event of the year, Pumpkin Drop. We also put on Egg Drop, our Marsh White project, for local Memphis kids to get them excited about physics. Our SPS chapter has taught me a lot about physics, communication, and, most importantly, community. Our chapter was very active on zoom during the pandemic and helped create a community our members could lean on. I am eager to help bring that sense of community to Zone 10!
