Midterm Presentation

At this time I had discussed my senior project with both Dr. Scott Schneider and Dr. Valentina Tobos.  I knew Dr. Scott was going to be my adviser since we had previously discussed what type of physics project I was interested in doing at the 2013 Midwest Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics in Urbana-Champaign,…
