Plans for the future: "I plan on attending graduate school to attain a PhD in Astrophysics."
Your favorite thing so far about your REU summer: "My favorite thing so far is that I got to meet so many different students from different backgrounds who share my interests. Being able to see different approaches to problems has definitely enriched my research experience!"
One thing you’ve learned/something unexpected this summer?: "I’ve learned so much already, but probably my favorite is how to take data directly from a radio telescope. I’ve never used one on-site before, so that was very exciting."
