Texas Lutheran University
Herbert Levy Memorial Scholarship
My name is Daniel Morales, I am from Austin, Texas but I go to a small Lutheran school in Seguin, Texas. I am majoring in Applied Physics and I plan on attending graduate school for a career (as of right now) in some sort of materials science, hopefully to work with renewable energies. I am actually an SPS summer 2018 intern. I am doing research at NASA in order to gain some exposure in the other fields of physics that I may not be able to get into after my undergraduate career. It has also been my dream to work at a place as prestigious as NASA, so I am beyond ready for the experience to work amongst these professionals and also my colleagues at the SPS internship.
Outside of studying physics, my hobbies and interests include teaching physics through tutoring sessions at my school, spending time with family and friends, and also spending time in the gym powerlifting. I also enjoy playing video games, mainly classics such as Super Smash Bros, Legend of Zelda, etc.
