I'm a 6th year in the Applied Physics program at the University of Michigan. I study the many materials that we use to interact with light and I'm interested in ways these materials become inefficient when we push them to extremes. I do all my research using super computers, so instead of wearing a lab coat and glasses, I sit in front of a big computer monitor all day. I’m also very interested in communicating science to both technical and non-technical audiences. A lot of my time is spent figuring out how to explain what I do to others as simply as possible. When I'm not doing that, you'll most likely find me wearing spandex (on a bike!), watching science channels on YouTube, or ogling books at my local book stores.
