How has being a Physics graduate from Duke helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"The education and experiences that I received taught me how to be a scientist in all senses of the word - communicating my ideas, discovering new things, working hard, using data to defend my conclusions, and being part of a team. I met classmates who became friends and, later, colleagues and business partners. I am very proud to have had the opportunity to be a part of the Duke Physics community and continually enjoy realizing newfound connections as that community expands and evolves."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Physics programs? 

"Work hard and do not give up; at the same time, make sure to exist and grow outside of just the physics research. The skills that will make you happy and successful will include more than just knowing physics."
