Change of Pace

Posted by lwpetersen | May 29, 2011 | photo-blog

I have successfully completed my first year of graduate school. After leaving my work with the Interstellar Boundary EXplorer (IBEX) at UNH I thought I would be heading into a possible space physics based career in graduate school too. However, something about Alaska has changed my mind and I’ve been desiring to get into more ground-based physics. It looks like I may be studying the physics of glaciers, and I hope this means I may get to do a little bit of field work here in Alaska. Everything is tentative now, but I’m getting really excited about this prospect.
