     “My whole life, I have felt a connection with nature. I like this campus because I’m able to live in a farmhouse and connect with the natural world while studying physics and math. I think the two are connected—one is a great way to appreciate the other.     ”There’s this common misconception that to understand something scientifically we have to step back and take a completely empirical approach divorced from personal meaning and beauty. People think that by understanding something, we‘re getting rid of its mysterious side. But I think that understanding something opens up completely new realms that we’ve never considered before: it makes the thing that much more beautiful.”
