I’m a Physics major and Computer Science minor at UC Berkeley. I’ve been involved in nuclear physics research for about three years, studying topics such as Upsilon polarization, scintillation detectors, lattice QCD computations, and jets produced in heavy-ion collisions. I plan on pursuing a PhD in either Physics or Computer Science. My hobbies include reading, exercising, programming, and hanging out with friends.
