AIP Mather Policy Intern: Representative Bill Foster's office (D-IL 11)
U.S. House of Representatives
My adventure with Representative Bill Foster
I am a junior at Tufts University, studying both Physics and Peace & Justice Studies. I love these two diverse fields. With Physics I try to understand how the universe works, from the smallest hadron to the largest galaxy. Peace and Justice Studies informs me about how society works, and encourages me to think critically about how we can move towards a more just and peaceful society.
I am very excited to work as an AIP Mather Policy Intern this summer through SPS. I believe that policy does a great deal of shaping what research is conducted, and I value the time to learn about how the process works, and to affect this process myself. In the past I have worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific at the intersection between science and education, and at the Museum of Memory and Human Rights in Santiago, Chile, learning how human rights can be impacted by the government. These experiences have allowed me to further develop my understanding of how government and society interact and impact each other. I am so looking forward to working on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC this summer, and learning more about the process of science policy.
