Erika is a graduate student at the University of Arizona.
She is working on a project related to large scale structure, but the only thing directly relating to DES so far is some outreach work.
We asked Erika a few more questions, here’s what she had to say…
What is your favorite book, movie, and/or TV show?
I’m a huge Harry Potter fan! I also enjoy Big Bang Theory.
Any advice for aspiring scientists?
In karate, I learned the importance of perseverance: never give up, never give in! I think this is very important in science, because it is easy to feel like giving up sometimes.
Any other fun fact about yourself that you’d like to share with our public audience.
I have a blackbelt in karate, so I guess that’s cool…
