Student Spotlights

I was lucky enough to find two incredible research mentors.

Mahiro Abe '20

I'm most proud of the fact that I've been able to become involved in cutting-edge physics research. For example, with Professor Julia Thom-Levy's group, I have worked on the CMS detector at CERN, which investigates the properties of the fundamental particles that make up the universe. I am lucky to have been able to contribute to upgrades to the detector, as well as to perform analyses aiming to measure unobserved physical phenomena, working both at Cornell and at CERN. Working on such projects enabled me to utilize skills learned in both my physics and computer science classes, as well as develop new skills.
