Summary

I am currently a freshman at DePauw University, and I am majoring in physics.  I am not set on a specific career path, but I plan to attend graduate school in physics following my graduation from DePauw.  Through ITAP, I am gaining greater technical proficiency, and I look forward to applying my skills to internships over the course of my education here.  While I may not pursue a directly technological field for a living, the skills I learn through my work in ITAP will certainly benefit me wherever I may go.
