Amogh is a member of Cornell Current, a club dedicated to analyzing current events across various sectors. He is part of the Shvets Research Group, which studies laser-plasma physics for electron acceleration and held an internship at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. He enjoys thinking about the philosophy of art and running.

Amogh breaks the rules by delving into the abstract to solve concrete problems.

He wants prospective students to know that “while it’s important to find your passion, it may instead happen that your passion will find you.”

After Cornell, Amogh hopes to perform groundbreaking research in physics.
