Studying at Johns Hopkins has given me the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the best minds in my field.
It is my experience that the community of graduate students in the Materials Science and Engineering Department are a close knit group who are always willing to lend a helping hand, whether it’s in the lab doing research or out of the lab deciding where to hang out in one of Baltimore’s many welcoming neighborhoods.
In the Materials Science and Engineering department at Hopkins, I was able to learn the fundamentals of the structure property relationship in different materials. At the same time I spent many hours working with the JHU Barnstormers in the Swirnow Theater, learning drafting, wood working and welding.
My experience as a Johns Hopkins researcher has been immeasurably rewarding. I have particularly appreciated the streamlined nature of entering a research group and building a mentor-student relationship, the independence and confidence I experienced applying my knowledge of materials science, and the warm, family-like nature of the lab groups.
