I am a physics major at Grinnell College, class of 2013. This fall I will enter my third year as an undergraduate student, and will study abroad for the upcoming semester. On campus I work as a T.C. (or technology consultant), and work at the Grinnell College technology Helpdesk. I also work as a grader for the physics department. My current interests lie in particle physics and astrophysics - during the spring of 2011 I did an independent study in astrophysics at the Grant O. Gale observatory in Grinnell. After this summer in Kansas State University, I have also developed an interest in condensed matter physics, and am looking forward to learning more in this area in the future. After receiving my undergraduate degree I want to go to graduate school and pursue a Ph. D.

For fun I enjoy playing sports and staying active. I am a captain of the Grinnell Women’s Tennis team, and I have a great time with all of my teammates on and off the court. Especially during the warm weather, I like to spend time outside - hiking, running, biking, volleyball, frisbee, and especially tennis - I enjoy them all. I like trying new things and learning about new places, which is one of the many reasons that I am looking forward to my semester abroad in Copenhagen. Home for me is a beautiful town in the northwest: Edmonds, Washington. I have two great, supportive parents, two younger brothers, and a lovely golden retriever who just turned 14. When I have free time I like going for walks, taking time to read, and spending time with all my wonderful friends.
