- Summer 2018: Summer Undergraduate Laboratory Internship
- I worked 10 weeks in the Theory Center with the DOE SULI program, and continued at theinvitation of my mentor for an additional week funded by the lab. I now work remotely andhave regular virtual meetings with lab physicists.
- I developed a Monte Carlo analysis pipeline, based on existing numerical simulation packages,which has become useful in several ongoing studies in the Theory Center.
- I gave several talks on my research efforts, including a poster presentation.
- Summer 2017: optX Imaging
- I worked 12 weeks as an engineering intern, with a primary focus in software engineering.
- I developed Python tools for optimizing image enhancement kernels for use with optX lenses.
- I designed and developed a Windows application for high-performance testing and analysis ofimage enhancement kernels.
Group meeting at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD
Master's thesis at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD
Poster presentation at Jefferson Lab, Newport News, VA
- I developed software with another college student which is now facilitating peer tutoring at six high schools and which has reached hundreds of students.
- DOE National Science Bowl
- I have volunteered at two regional competitions, and was invited to volunteer at the national competition, an event bringing together hundreds of high-achieving high school students.
