Senior at Kansas State University majoring in Physics with minors in Computer Science and Mathematics. Started teaching myself programming when I was 11 and have not stopped since then and discovered my love for physics along the way. I have worked in the fields of scientific computing, mission critical software testing, and applied optics and instrument design. I am a research assistant for Matt Berg, a professor at K-State. My work consists of two different jobs: Hardware and software development for an instrument to image large aerosol particles from an unmanned aerial vehicle and applied optics research in digital holographic imaging of aerosol particles.
