What are you curious about and what do you hope to explore during your time as a Scholar? 

I am deeply curious about the universe and humanity’s place in it. From a scientific perspective, I hope to explore the nature of reality, both on the micro and macro scale, from studying galaxy formations to fundamental particles. I am extremely excited by the prospect of studying physics at university level with the opportunity for collaborative and independent research. My main reason for looking to study in the US, however, is the ability to engage in a liberal arts curriculum. I cannot wait to reignite my passion for humanities, languages and the arts, giving me the opportunity to understand society through different lenses.
