Jared grew up in the frigid, icy north (Fairbanks, Alaska) before moving to New Mexico to pursue his education at New Mexico Tech. There, he currently studies physics and electrical engineering and plans to begin PhD studies in physics in Fall 2017. He is concluding his reign of 2.5 years as president of the Society of Physics Students at NMT. During this time he served on the SPS National Council for a year as the AZ/NM Associate Zone Councilor. He worked at Los Alamos National Lab, the Air Force Research Lab, and in the NMT Department of Physics on various research projects during his time at NMT.
When not completing coursework or designing new physics demonstrations, Jared can be found running/hiking/biking with his dog, experimenting with a VR headset, or (rarely) chipping away at his sleep debt.
