University of Maryland – College Park
SPS Leadership Scholarship
I am a junior studying physics and mathematics at the University of Maryland, College Park. I have been involved with the Society of Physics Students since I joined UMD's chapter as a freshman, and served as president during my sophomore year.
I work on Lattice QCD in the Quarks, Hadron, and Nuclei Theory Group at UMD with Dr. Paulo Bedaque, and am developing methods to accelerate Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulations of quantum field theories. I plan to attend graduate school to study theoretical physics.
