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

"My research experience working in Dr. Dan Gauthier's group at Duke Physics provided me with well-rounded skill sets in optics, computational techniques and fundamental analog electronics. I am very lucky to be able to use these everyday in my professional life to design and prototype new sensors that impact millions of people around the world. I wouldn't be able to do my current work had it not been for the training I received in Dr. Gauthier's group at Duke for which I am extremely grateful."

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

"Find ways to get involve in projects out of your comfort zone; those are usually the ones that provide the most learnings and unique opportunities."
