Spotlight #3

Sanah Bhimani is a second-year Physics PhD student at Yale University and currently does CMB experimental cosmology where she works with a team to accomplish the goal of looking for gravitational waves from the inflationary period and believes she can get that through polarization signals in the CMB power spectrum. She remembers being strongly discouraged from pursuing a career in Physics because of scores/GPA, and never felt like there were enough conversations about passion/perseverance. She recalls herself feeling very lonely when she was younger due to this hindrance, and, as a result, unintelligent. She wants to make sure others don’t feel alone because as she describes it, “if you can see it, you can be it.”

She agreed to an interview as she feels that the audience will appreciate the honesty in the conversation-like interview.
