SPS is my home away from home. I have excelled and have learned to love every aspect of physics. Attending Texas Section meetings with my fellow SPS peers, applying and being accepted to REU programs, and planning my trip to Congress 2019 in Providence Rhode Island, have all been a reality to me due to the opportunities that SPS offers.

SPS has given me a community and environment to grow and mature as a student and a person. It has allowed me to challenge myself to be and do better.
After finding out that my project had met its match: the software Goliath. I felt like David in that scenario. This week has been wildy productive, though. My poster draft is due on Wednesday and final (newly updated) abstracts are due to NASA by next Friday.
This week has had its ups and downs, and when I say "downs" I really mean just a minor inconvenience with my project at NASA. After trying to model niobium-coated microstrips on a silicon substrate, we were consistently finding that COMSOL was not producing the expected results time after time.
