I am an aspiring physicist whose interests lie in developing smaller, higher energy particle accelerators. I hope to use knowledge from accelerator physics, particle beam, plasma physics, nonlinear dynamics, chaos, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, and the study of phase transitions. I am especially interested in applications to medical and space sciences. I am currently working on trapping antimatter. My particular career goals involve developing high gradient accelerators using wakefields and increasing the brightness of light sources. At some point I also hope to use developments in laser and beam physics technology to create antimatter via the production of Schwinger pairs. I also have interests in atmospheric electricity, sprites, aurora, and other space and ionosphere physics.

"Space, is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space..."
