Rebecca graduated magna cum laude with honors from Brown University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Physics. In addition to the math and physics courses she took for her degree, she also dabbled in a few computer science courses and participated heavily in student performance groups. Rebecca is a current PhD candidate in Applied Physics at Harvard University’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Her research focus is in nonlinear optics and integrated photonics, although her research lab also works heavily in quantum optics.
Rebecca specializes in physics and mathematics tutoring. Rebecca has worked with a range of students, from elementary school to college level. At Brown, she served as a Meiklejohn peer advisor for two years and tutored fellow college students in physics and math courses for three years.
Outside of the classroom, Rebecca enjoys cooking, baking, listening to musical theatre soundtracks, and struggling through the New York Times crossword. She is overly competitive when it comes to board games, especially Settlers of Catan.
