Career Goals "To be a successful research scientist in either industry or with a start-up company. I hope to develop technology that has a great impact on society as a whole and helps alleviate an important issue affecting the community, i.e. cancer, crime, illness, etc."
Values "My most important value is family and friends. I value honesty, hard work, kindness, and perseverance."
Undergraduate[s] Sarah Wycoff (4th year)
Background "I am from Stafford, VA. I chose UVA for graduate school because I really enjoyed the people that I met during visitation weekend, I found the research in multiple groups very interesting, I absolutely love Charlottesville, I wanted to be close to my family (still live in Northern VA), and most importantly, my wife and I love the state of Virginia."
