I was a junior in college when a YouTube binge led me to the corner of the internet where documentaries on the life of Einstein are found. I learned that many of his greatest ideas came when he sat in a room quietly with his eyes closed for hours imagining being on a train at the speed of light or floating in space in a closed box. It seemed I could participate in high-level scientific thought just by closing my eyes. I am drawn to science that pushes you to think deeply or creatively, such as the particle-wave duality of matter that, although confusing and a paradigm shift for most budding scientists, is fundamental to physical chemistry and astronomical observations.
