Engineering & Physics
CEINT Research Site: Vikesland Lab, Virginia Tech
My time at CEINT gave me the opportunity to perform scientific research and to obtain new experiences. I enjoyed my time at Duke and Virginia Tech, when I was able to perform interesting research in nanotechnology and got the opportunity to learn about the many different types of research being performed in this field and to work with graduate students and professors who were very helpful in teaching me about the subject and helping show me how to perform my research project.
Career Impacts and Plans
Ultimately I decided that I did not want to pursue science in the future, but the experiences I gained in the CEINT REU program will definitely help me wherever I go.
