SSAI Underrepresented Student Scholarship
I am a rising senior at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN. I am pairing my physics major with minors in mathematics and philosophy. Through working in our on-campus observatory and in various research groups, I have developed a passion for astrophysics that I hope to continue into graduate school. I have mostly worked on spectroscopy of galaxies, and I am excited to explore new research as an SPS NASA intern this summer! My dream career would probably involve working in an observatory before becoming a professor of astronomy. Outside of academics, our SPS chapter has had a huge impact on my college experience. I love doing local outreach and building fun demos, and I look forward to being our chapter’s president next year. I also help run our Philosophy Club and our newly-founded Women in STEM club. At home, I love watching films, reading philosophy, and taking care of my plants.
