Grad school, Year Three.



The third year of the Physics PhD represents a shift away from schooling and into research. Having fully passed my preliminary exam, I set to work on the first chapter of my thesis work: How Does Modeling Complexity Arise?

The onset of COVID-19 toward the end of this year, along with the siloing commonly associated with research, made this year less social, Physics-wise, than the previous two. I found new friends through Davis Smash and in Topanga, CA, deepening my relationships with my housemates and girlfriend.
