Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like strawberries
, the movie Amelie
, and awe-inspiring
scenery. I graduated college from a very conservative university:
Texas A&M (in what is lovingly called "Closet station".. really
it's "college station, TX"). Needless to say, I didn't click with a
lot of people down there even though I grew up in Texas. Not that
being conservative... or even religious... is bad (though I
probably disagree with them more often than not), I know some very
reasonable and awesome conservatives and christians... it's when
they get to the religious right that I start to cringe.
I now go to school at UMD for my PhD in physics, and while I'm not
a huge fan of College Park, I do like DC and being further up
north... with the exception of not being in Austin, TX. But having
grown up in an area full of fundamentalists and seeing some of the
follies of ignorance, I've come to really value critical thinking
edness as much as I
Despite that, I am all for fully embracing my humanity even when it
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in PhD candidate in physics. I plan to graduate and get a
post-doc or two. From there, I hope to eventually move into
academia and get a job as a professor, so that I can teach and do
research. I'm also developing a plan B if the whole professor thing
doesn't work out, but I'm sure I'll be okay since I don't think
I'll be unemployed with a physics PhD. (Right?)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
, of course. I'm
quite good at drawing
when I get myself to actually do
it, and I used to be quite good at painting
. I'm creative (you gotta be
for math and physics). I'm good at weaving together a story that is
intriguing, epic, and thoughtful (though I'm working on the writing
part). I'm also relatively good at computers.
Oh and being a perfectionist; I'm really good at that... much to my

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-A pen and paper
-Love from friends and family
-Acceptance from the ones I love most
-A new book to read/learn from.
-The back and forth of emotion and reason.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My career, physics, entanglement and it's relation to mixed states,
non-linear sigma model, Casimir effect for condensed matter
systems, topological insulators, Kondo topological insulators,
random matrix theory, symmetric spaces and classifications of
Hamiltonians, quantum geometry, coherent state path integrals,
quantum graphs, the eigenstate thermalization hypothesis, many-body
localization, and Floquet systems.
I think too much -- but have started concentrating more on physics.
