ANJALI NAMBRATH, MIT physics, math, and French




Major: Physics

College/Employer: MIT

Year of Graduation: 2021

Picture of Anjali Nambrath

Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a senior at MIT studying physics and math with computer science, and I'm also a French minor. I'm currently doing some research on how to improve analysis methods for neutrino experiments, so that we can be sure that any new physics we discover is actually new. Here's a small list of things that make me happy: foreign-language TV shows, fresh tacos, and particle physics.

S14155: black holes! in Splash 2020 (Nov. 14 - 15, 2020)
Black holes live in the middle of galaxies, spew out hot plasma, and gulp up stars. We'll talk about the history of black holes, what happens when you get too close to a black hole, what black holes do to space and time, and some cool black hole thought experiments. If you want to learn more about all sorts of astrophysical weirdness, this class is for you!


S14156: the standard model! in Splash 2020 (Nov. 14 - 15, 2020)
The Standard Model is (as far as we know) the best description of our universe. It summarizes the particles that make up everything around us (as far as we know), and also some things that aren't usually around us. If you want to unlock the mysteries of the universe (as far as we know), join the club and take our class!


H14012: History of 20th Century Science in HSSP Summer 2020 (Jul. 11, 2020)
The twentieth century was pretty crazy. Massive wars in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East; decolonization and the end of an old world order; the rise of the global economy, modern finance, and widespread inequality... and also groundbreaking scientific discoveries and technological innovation. From quantum mechanics to modern vaccines, from artificial intelligence to the space race, we'll investigate some of these developments and their profound impact on our world today.


S14013: Quantum Computing! in HSSP Summer 2020 (Jul. 11, 2020)
Quantum computing is apparently the future - people are putting the word "quantum" in front of everything these days. This class will teach you the basics of how quantum computers work, how we can build them, and some neat stuff that we can do with them. It'll be up to you to decide how much of a difference they'll ever make!


P13797: Black Holes! in Spark 2020 (Mar. 14 - 15, 2020)
Black holes live in the middle of galaxies, spew out hot plasma, and gulp up stars. We'll talk about the history of black holes, what happens when you get too close to a black hole, what black holes do to space and time, and some cool black hole thought experiments. If you want to learn more about all sorts of astrophysical weirdness, this class is for you!
