Arun S. Madhavan (B.S., Physics/Math, 2006)


I am a graduate student at Iowa State University in Ames, IA in high energy astrophysics.

I will be doing my Ph.D. with VERITAS, a gamma ray
astronomy experiment located in Arizona. Grad school is tough with
the 12 hour work days, endless grading, and homework problems that
do not make any sense unless you were born in Hilbert space. My old
professors at the University of Minnesota did a great job of preparing
me. I am hoping to pursue a research career after grad school. Given
that the average Ph.D. student here takes five years to graduate, maybe
I will decide to do something else!
