Our names are Jeffrey Qiao and Arianna Serafini and we are two rising seniors (class of 2016) currently attending Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, NH. This summer we were graced with the opportunity to visit and study at the RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator Based Science, in Tokyo, Japan, for two weeks. Through this internship, which is called the RIKEN Program, we will learn modern physics and receive training in laboratory equipment operation from some of the best minds in the field – and we can’t wait! We are incredibly thankful to our school, to RIKEN, to the Exeter network in Tokyo, and to our host families for making this program a reality. In this blog, we will be chronicling our experiences in Japan, both at RIKEN and elsewhere.
Thanks for looking!
Arianna and Jeffrey
