Michael Maindi


Background:

Im Michael Maindi, an incoming junior physics major at Harvey Mudd College, in Claremont, California. I am a Star Trek fan, which is what mostly prompted my interest in science, and physics in particular (or perhaps it was the other way around, but that doesnt much matter.) As a Star Trek fan, I have grown up with a strong moral and ethical sense, which has lead me to do some (volunteer) work with/for the progressive political group Hands-on-Democracy; my mother also works with them. Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity for any research this summer at my school, but I am hoping to begin some in the coming year.
