REU Class of 2022
Eliza Walters '22
"This experience has opened my eyes to the independence, challenges, and sense of responsibility that come with being a researcher.... I have also come to realize how many more experienced researchers go through a similar process; there are always unanswered questions, and grappling with unknown ideas is truly how research is conducted and scientific progress is made. "
Michelle Kwok '22
University of Notre Dame
"I've really enjoyed being able to completely focus on conducting research, as that is something I've not been able to do prior to now due to schoolwork and other jobs. I also enjoy working with my peers and mentors, and being a part of a research group where I got to see where everyone's smaller project fit into a larger project and the implications that has for physics as a whole."
Maya Caskey '22
California Institute of Technology
"This experience has made me realize how much of a community effort research is today."
