Who I am: I have finished my studies at College of DuPage and will be transferring to University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign as a Junior majoring in Mechanical Engineering. I dreaded taking physics in high school; I though it would be boring. I soon discovered that physics is the connection of math and science. My interest for these two things told me that I wanted to study more physics. Whenever I have free time, I enjoy attending concerts, hiking, and cooking.
Research: ProtoDUNE is the prototype of the DUNE far detector that will operate in a particle test beam at CERN and test different light guide designs. We produced and tested dip-coated light guide bars for protoDUNE.
