Detecting a Protein in its Natural Environment
I am a physics student at Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Last year, I studied the glass transition temperature widths of cesium borate and lithium borate glasses at various modifier contents. Although I am just starting my journey in physics, I am very passionate about everything I do. My main interest in physics is material sciences. I am fascinated by the technological progress of the world and I want to aid in the process. After I receive my bachelors, my goal is to earn my doctorate in material sciences and someday be a research scientist inventing the latest technology.
I am originally from Texas but have spent the last few years in St. Louis, Missouri. In my free time, I love playing and watching sports of any kind. I am on the varsity football team at my school and play lacrosse as well. Other than sports and school, I like socializing, being outside, and reading. I am very adventurous and I cannot wait for the summer to start. I am excited to research at a national lab and take advantage of all the opportunities this internship has in store for us.
