ABOUT ME:

William received his bachelor's degree in physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in 2012, where he had the opportunity to conduct research in observational astronomy, analyzing data from the Milky Way using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). He later pursued graduate studies at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, joining the MIT - Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) group focusing on studying the effects of coating thermal noise on gravitational wave detectors. He decided to take a break from physics after 2016 to pursue other activities, but always having an interest in fundamental physics, he was compelled to learn more about the Wolfram Physics Project by joining the Wolfram Summer School. Besides an interest in physics, other activities that occupy his time include: gaming, playing the piano, and playing sports such as basketball and tennis.
