S.U.L.I. Summer Research Intern

Argonne, IL

I liked the laid back, yet hard-working atmosphere of Argonne. However, I realized that research simply for the sake of research is not something I can get truly passionate about. I realized I would much rather be involved in the production of a product instead of developing scripts for a machine that isn't even allowed in the United States. I am most thankful to this internship for showing me that I should not pursue a career in research.
