SPS Outstanding Leadership Scholarship
I am a third year student at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, with a major in physics and minors in mathematics, computer science, and Middle Eastern studies. I first got involved with high energy research in my freshman year, and have since worked on several different projects, including searches for supersymmetry and the Higgs boson. Last summer, my work brought me to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and I will be spending my upcoming summer working at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Outside of physics, my secondary pursuit here at Rutgers has been the study of Eastern culture and religion, and I had the opportunity to study abroad in India this past year. After graduation, I plan to enroll in a Ph.D. program to continue my research in high energy experimental physics, and will hopefully obtain a professorship at a research university following my doctorate.
