I am a third-year undergraduate physics and mathematics major at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, originally from Pipestone Minnesota. I love to keep myself very busy with classes, clubs, and research. I am currently working on three research projects. Two of these projects are with the Accelerator Neutrino Neutron Interaction Experiment (ANNIE) where I am developing a new event reconstruction method along with conducting a feasibility study of future studies/detector modifications. I also have research experience with radon background studies (for nEXO, LZ, and SuperCDMS), custom environmental monitoring detectors for cleanrooms, and projective planes, both at South Dakota Mines and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. I am currently the vice president of the South Dakota Mines SPS chapter, and I am also the founder and president of another student organization, the Health and Fitness Club. After earning my undergraduate degree, I plan to attend graduate school for a PhD in particle physics.
Soon, I’ll pursue a Ph.D. in experimental particle/astrophysics. I love SPS, but it’s mostly geared toward undergraduate students. Because of this, I hope to help graduate schools start to develop APS chapters so that I can bring this passion to the graduate level.
