BA Physics 2006
In July 2011, I took a position at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, CA working as an Internal Dosimetrist in the Environment, Safety and Health Directorate. I determine radiation doses to workers who are being monitored for internal exposure to radionuclides and act as a resource to the radiation safety professionals on site. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, I am also still finishing my PhD in Radiological Engineering from the University of Cincinnati. I received my MS in Health Physics from the University of Cincinnati in August 2007.
My memories of the Physics Department at Miami are some of my favorite. Though the coursework was a challenge and there were many restless nights thinking about a problem or working on a laboratory report, I couldn't have made a better decision to study physics. The professors were always willing to answer questions and help you to really understand the material. Keep in mind, there are many, many jobs you can do and research avenues you can pursue with a physics degree.
