I first discovered the opportunity to participate in the SRP Program’s summer research internship through my math professor, Wai Lau. Before participating, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but now that I am here, I am having the best time! I really appreciate having the opportunity to learn about a new subject and to participate at national laboratory with full time researchers. Participating in the summer research internship has inspired me to look into more research opportunities and think of ways I can start working on my own research projects now. Also, I never knew this kind of stuff existed when I was younger. It makes me want to be an advocate to younger students about these opportunities. Overall, my experience so far has been great! I never thought I would get this awesome opportunity to do research at a national laboratory. I am so grateful for this opportunity!
