My name is Sasha Sumner and I am currently a freshman. I am an amateur physicist and an amateur mountaineer that hails from the town of Ellensburg, Washington (it is in the middle).
I plan to pursue a PhD (I am not decided on a particular area yet) so that I can become a non-amateur physicist. Why did I join Altman lab? Well the short story is I joined for the novelty and stayed for the fun. The medium story is I was curious about biophysics, and then I found that it is a lot of fun. I work on the single molecule team and if you want to know about it ask Prof. Altman; he would love to give you an earful.
