Physics BS, 2010

My name is Jerome Mlack and I am currently a physics major at Drexel University in my fourth year. In 2006 I helped to re-establish Drexel’s chapter of the Society of Physics Students and served as its first President for two years and as Vice President this past year. I have co-written proposals for the Marsh White Award and Sigma Pi Sigma Undergraduate Research Award, and was a Congress Reporter at the 2008 Sigma Pi Sigma Quadrennial Congress. As part of SPS and Drexel’s Low Temperature and Quantum Device Laboratory (LTQD) I have organized and performed physics demonstrations for over 1000 high school students during our physics department’s annual Kaczmarczik lecture. In the past I have done research internships at Penn State ARL, the Army Research Laboratory, and am currently at the Magnetism and Spin Electronics group at Trinity College Dublin. I have also been a member of the LTQD Laboratory at Drexel part time since my freshman year. There is nothing I enjoy more than tinkering in the lab and performing experiments, except for the occasional trips to hear the local jazz scene. After graduation in June of 2010 I plan to attend graduate school in physics and study in the field of quantum computation.
