Kansas State University Physics Department  REU Program


Welcome to my summer 2015 physics REU website.Below are links to pages that outline various aspects of my project and general experience during this program.

Project Overview- Overview of project and research logs about different portions of the project

Results & Simulations - Visualization of simulations and results. Final presentation can be found here as well

About Me & REU Fun - Social side of the REU


Note to future applicants:This REU was a phenomenal experience and has motivated me to pursue Theoretical Biophysics for graduate school. I was able to work in a graduate level environment on a challenging and rewarding project. From this experience you will gain invaluable skills and contacts. I gained insight and skills in the field of theoretical biophysics research and found it to be very exciting. Every day posed a new challenge that I looked forward to figuring out. Outside of the research it offers an invaluable expansion of your professional network. All the advisors were friendly and approachable. Also the other REU students quickly become old friends who you explore the town with. Itís a great opportunity to grow yourself as a scientist, extent your network and meet other like-minded peers.
