I was born and raised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia but my family moved to the U.S. four years ago. I’m a physics major and math minor at Boston University. I have worked in different physics labs so far, ranging from soft matter to condensed matter physics. I’m interested in soft condensed matter research but I also want to explore working in other fields such as solid state physics. My hobbies include reading books, swimming, drawing, watching movies and sight seeing.
