Who I am: I am an undergraduate at Michigan State University studying physics. I am most interested in high energy particle physics and accelerator R&D. In my free time I enjoy hiking and long distance swimming in the ocean.
Research: LCLS-II is a second generation x-ray free electron laser currently under construction at SLAC. Fermilab is responsible for designing, assembling and testing some of the cryomodules that will be used in LCLS-II. During my internship I wrote software to analyze some of the data from the cryomodules in order to assess their performance.
