Andrea at the Ohio State Fair

I love sharing my passion for physics with others :)  I really fell in love with physics when I started doing research...there was no answer in the back of the book anymore!  I think figuring out something new about the way our universe works is exciting and super sweet.  People have said that my passion for physics is contagious and that I am very good at explaining complex ideas in simple, understandable terms.  I'd like to thank my family for listening to my "physics rants" all these years and giving me lots of practice explaining what I do to non-experts.
