Hi, my name is Henry.

I'm a graduate student at Harvard University, studying physics with an interest in condensed matter theory. I was an undergraduate at MIT, where I double majored in physics and philosophy.

Work/Teaching Experience

My most up-to-date research and teaching experience can be found in my CV.
I've written a chunk of things in the past few years. Feel free to check them out if you're interested.

8.334 (Statistical Mechanics II) Final Paper

8.334 is the second and final class in a graduate sequence of classes on statistical mechanics. 8.334 focused largely on statistical field theory, phase transitions, and the renormalization group approach. For a final project, I wrote a paper on the statistical mechanics of two-dimensional membranes, focusing on both progress made from current literature and some original contributions.

8.13 (Junior Lab) Research Papers

In 8.13, MIT's undergraduate physics lab class, myself and my lab partner chose three experiments to conduct over the semester. We were given two weeks to complete each experiment, analyze our data, and put together both an oral presentation and a lab report. Below are my three lab reports.

Projects

East Campus REX

REX (Residential Exploration), is a week-long orientation event put on by MIT dorms to showcase their cultures to incoming freshmen. Although REX only takes place over a week, the elaborate projects that my dorm traditionally puts on requires more than half a year of preparation. As a REX chair for my dorm, I coordinated with MIT Facilities, Environmental Health and Safety, and the City of Cambridge to acquire the permits required to build a three-story wooden fort and other several other wooden rides. I worked with student project leads and volunteers to maintain a safe and code-compliant construction site for two weeks leading up to REX. Additionally, I helped organize and monitor the East Side Party (pictured), an annual party put on during orientation week, showcasing the many projects built. During this time, I worked with event leads and the MIT Division of Student Life to run over thirty additional events and seminars during the week of REX.

MIT Class of 2018 Brass Rat

Each MIT class selects a committee to design their year's Brass Rat, the MIT class ring. As the vice chair of the committee, I helped run weekly meetings with the eleven other committee members and a representative from Herff Jones to design our year's ring from the ground up (pictured is one of the sides of the ring). I collaborated with the Herff Jones advertising team in order to promote the ring to the 2018 class. While helping to manage the committee's budget, I assisted in planning Ring Delivery, an 800 person reception at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum where members of the 2018 class received their ring.
