James Madison University

I graduated James Madison University in the Fall of 2019 with a degree in Physics. During my time in undergrad I conducted research in Nuclear and Particle Physics with Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. I developed and tested custom circuit boards for the Electro-magnetic Calorimeter (ECAL) in Hall A. The boards I have designed will eventually be mass produced and installed in ECAL.

I have been involved in the JMU Physics Department by becoming a Teaching Assistant, Tutor, and Grader for classes ranging from Physics I to Mechanics. This experience has taught me how to tailor my teaching to better suit students learning style and has ultimately set my sight in a career in academia.

I plan to continue my education by pursuing a PhD in Mechanical Engineering so that I can further my knowledge in Renewable Energy
