Massachusetts Institute of Technology
My name is Natalia Guerrero and I’m originally from Orlando, Florida. I first considering studying physics when I was in high school. I had gotten a refracting telescope from a thrift store and started stargazing in my backyard every few weekends. The vast scale and beauty of space struck me then and I became interested in discovering the many mysteries and unknowns of the universe. At MIT, I plan on pursuing research in astrophysics and in the future, helping to answer the big questions in this field. I am very excited for this upcoming year of studies and am extremely grateful to have received this scholarship from the American Physical Society.
