“From Newton to Nuclei”

The skills I learned during my time at PNW shaped my trajectory in the STEM field, from my beginnings as a mechanical engineering student to my current occupation as theoretical nuclear physicist. I will discuss my time and experiences as an undergraduate student at PNW, and share key lessons I learned which have helped me throughout my professional career as a scientist.

Throughout my talk, I will provide a personal view of modern physics, from the initial developments by Newton to our current understanding of the subatomic world.

Time and Location

All presentations are free and open to the public and all PNW students, faculty and staff. The events will be held on the Hammond Campus, in the Powers Building (PWRS) 115 (CIVS Immersive Theater), each beginning at 3 p.m.
