University of Pittsburgh
AIP Center for History of Physics Intern
American Institute of Physics
I am a graduating senior at the University of Pittsburgh and will have degrees in both Physics and Communication & Rhetoric. I have loved astronomy for as long as I can remember and currently lead an undergraduate astronomy research group, STEPUP, confirming exoplanet transits for NASA’s TESS mission. In addition to physics, I love history, traveling, and being outside, hiking, biking, and practicing yoga. I am extremely excited to combine my interests in physics, history, and communication as this year’s Center for History of Physics and AIP Archives intern. Though I haven’t completely given up on my dream to be an astronaut, I want to leverage my communication and physics background to make science more accessible to the general public through outreach or policy.
