I'm a graduate student at Charles University studying physics and generally having a pretty good time.
Right now I’m transitioning from my Master’s degree focus (MRI research) to more theoretical endeavors. I’m splitting my time about 50/50 between my advisor’s work in group-theoretical approaches to understanding ferroic phase transitions (Phys. Rev. Let.), and my own ideas in something that I call physical algebra (2017 March Meeting).
Before switching to theoretical physics, I was doing research in the field of magnetic resonance imaging and before that I was an undergraduate at BYU and worked with two research groups. I've always held a dual interest in medicine and physics so with the one group I learned X-ray crystallography and with the other I learned about Proteomics. Below you'll see a short summary of the three papers I've helped author.
