Light: A Spectrum of Utility
The 2014 SPS SOCK
I am the son of Haitian immigrants, born and reared in Boston, Massachusetts. I am currently studying physics at Xavier University of Louisiana. I work with the STEM education research program observing the effectiveness of service learning in the New Orleans school system. I have previously done research analyzing the conditions in the troposphere and stratosphere using a small payload that measures temperature, pressure, and relative humidity. This year, I was invited to the 16th Annual LS-Lamp/Stem Science in conjunction with NORC Consortium Research Conference. During my time at Xavier, I have worked as a mathematics tutor, and I am presently the treasurer of Xavier's NSBE chapter as well as student coordinator for the physics outreach program. I hope to further my education by enrolling in a graduate physics or education program.
My interests outside of school include working out, volunteering and traveling. I look forward to spending my summer in Washington, D.C. as it will be my first visit to the nation’s capital. I am very excited to see what the city has to offer and to meet all of my fellow SPS interns.
