I am an alumnus of The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, having graduated in 2009 with a bachelor's degree in Physics, with a minor in Applied Science.
Between 2008 and 2009, I spent a great deal of time researching Niobium surface structures and polishing techniques at Jefferson Lab. Portions of this research may be used to construct key components of the International Linear Collider, if it ever gets built. This work eventually produced a thesis.
In 2007, I worked with the Geophysical Institute at The University of Alaska Fairbanks, and studied methods and applications of automatic infrasonic signal detection and localization.
During the 2007-8 academic year, I studied at The University of St Andrews in Scotland as a visiting student, where I completed various coursework relating to my Physics BSc.
My personal interests include sailing, rowing, and photography. I've also done a great deal of technical event planning and coordination, both at W&M and St Andrews.
