Meet Lucy Grant – B.S. Physics, Class of 2021
Hometown – Atlanta, Georgia
What do you enjoy most about physics?
Above all, it’s the opportunities that it affords. I am getting a degree in physics and I intend to eventually pursue a career in research, but with my degree I could do anything I wanted. Physics is a very versatile science, because it is the foundation of a lot of other disciplines, which opens many different doors for me.
What do you plan to do after graduation?
After I graduate, I intend to go to graduate school to pursue a more specialized master’s and Ph.D. in physics, specifically soft matter and topological research (the study of materials, their properties and shapes, and how the physics of them contributes to their use). I eventually want to work in the research field.
What do you like about Atlanta?
Even though I've lived here for 19 years, I still can go out and find something new and exciting that I've never done before.
What do you like to do outside of classes?
In my free time, I like to hang out on Tech Green and walk around campus to see all of the animals and everything going on. There's something about a crowded and vibrant campus that just makes me happy.
