Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a senior in the physics department minoring in mechanical engineering. I interned abroad in Germany for the past two summers, and enjoy thinking about languages and cultures. I'm always up for learning something new. I am a member of the Society of Physics Students, and also a member of SaveTFP. I am a founding member of the Order of the Lepton. In what spare time I have, I enjoy playing video games, reading science fiction, costuming, and baking. I love my gadgets, and will be a crazy old laptop lady (instead of cats) when I'm old.
