"Doing CS related work all day for a month did make me realize that I love this field and I picked my major right. After the research, I am much more excited to go into the field and either work in the industry or conduct research."
– Ali Gokcelioglu '20 Computer Science research with Dave Barbella
"Overall, this experience has been an incredible journey of becoming comfortable with academic research and scholarship. Not only that it gave me a further desire to dig into the areas of knowledge that I was not completely familiar with before the beginning of the research, but it also enabled me to work on my soft personal skills. Amongst many, it allowed me to effectively work in a group setting, to develop my communications skills, and to efficiently organize my working routine. All in all, the project was beneficial in a way that it widened the options for my college and career path."

"This research experience has done a lot to demystify the process of physics research for me. When I think about the type of problems physicists are trying to model and solve the idea of working on them myself often seems overwhelming. What I learned, however, is that the process of research, while challenging, is completely doable. You approach problems one step at a time, you talk about things with your advisors and peers, you read and reread relevant papers, and before you know it you cansolve problems of a quite high complexity level without it feeling like a gargantuan task."
