SPS Leadership Scholarship
I am a rising senior at the University of California, Berkeley studying Physics and Computer Science. My interests lie in the field of high energy physics and currently I do research with Prof. Benjamin Safdi to simulate cosmological axions in the early universe. I look forward to delving deeper into this field and plan on getting a PhD in particle physics. I attended several public lectures and talks by notable physicists and mathematicians while I was in high school which in turn led me to become passionate about physics. As a result, I decided to become the seminar chair of our SPS chapter to bridge the gap between the esoteric research that professors do and enthusiastic students who would like to learn more about it. I also help organize Undergraduate Seminars which provide an opportunity to students to know the research other undergraduates do, and get a chance themselves to practice formal presentations. In my free time, I like hiking, playing the guitar, and juggling the football (not the American kind)!
