I'm Gauri and I'm a student at Yale! I'm originally from New Delhi, India but consider myself a citizen of the world :) I absolutely loved Physics and Chemistry in high school and spent the summer after my junior year at CU Boulder at an astrophysics program where I found the orbit of a near-Earth asteroid and the probability that it would enter earth's orbit (very minimal, thankfully!). I loved building things and actually ended up working at a lightbulb manufacturer as well, learning what makes LED bulbs glow so bright while being energy efficient. I communicated my love for engineering and Physics and my excitement to be part of Yale's research environment which is what worked in my favor!
