Physics in Medicine: Bridging the Gap
Hi! I'm APS's public outreach intern for 2014. I was born in DC to a pair of neuroscientists working for the National Institutes of Health, who were largely responsible for instilling in me a love of science. Twenty-two years later, I'm a recent graduate of Indiana University's applied physics program, with a minor in mathematics. I've done research in experimental physics, involving polarization of Helium-3, but my academic interests range from geophysics to cosmology. My personal interests include writing, rock climbing, Star Trek (the original series, please), singing, and turning links purple on Wikipedia. I feel a serious need to affect social change for the better in my lifetime, and hope to do so by educating people about the laws of nature; a critical, rational approach to understanding our place in the universe is vital to maintaining and advancing our society. As such, I'm thrilled to be working with SPS and can hardly wait to see what we can accomplish this summer.
