Not only am I a Computer Science major at Carnegie Mellon, but
I'm also a Physics major. I am pursuing this other line of
study purely for the enjoyment of the science. As Ernest
Rutherford said, "All of science is Physics; the rest is merely
stamp collecting." So true.
This first semester in my Senior year (Fall 1997) I'm taking
four physics courses
(along with two CS courses): Advanced Quantum Physics, Electricity
and Magnetism II, Physics Undergraduate Colloquium, and Astrophysics.
(the picture to the left is a Laue back-scattered photo I took of
Tungsten last semester using X-ray diffraction.)
I'm expecting to graduate in Spring of 1998 with a Bachelor
of Science degree in Physics and a Bachelor of Science degree in
Computer Science. Hopefully I can fit in all the required
courses in the standard undergraduate four years ;). So far
it looks like it'll work...
