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.

Why did you choose Cornell Engineering?
Because of the great feedback from people who attended Cornell and the potential opportunities that I could have by being part of this community!

What is your favorite thing about Cornell Engineering?
The amazing opportunities you have to work on side projects in addition to your academics, as well as the opportunity to meet people in your fields through Cornell’s Engineering alumni.

What do you do outside of the classroom? 
I am doing undergraduate research which is exciting and there are so many amazing teams at Cornell that you can always find the one that fits you best.

How was your experience adjusting to Cornell?
Adjusting to life at Cornell was good. There are a lot of smaller communities that you can get involved in that let you have friends from many different smaller communities like clubs, classroom, campus work etc.

Why did you choose Cornell Engineering?
Engineering Physics provided a wonderfully simple answer to my dilemma of choosing between physics and an engineering field. Not only is it a unique program and highly regarded in itself, I knew Cornell’s breadth as an institution would allow me to branch out to other areas to explore.

What is your favorite thing about Cornell Engineering?
I love being constantly surprised hearing about problems groups in other engineering departments are tackling, by clever solutions they’ve found and especially by unexpected connections between disciplines.

What do you do outside of the classroom?
I worked on an engineering project team moonlighting as a mechanical engineer and I do undergraduate research within AEP.

Why I choose Cornell Engineering:
I chose Cornell Engineering because I felt I could grow as a prospective scientist in a tight knit community.

What is your favorite thing about Cornell Engineering?
I love having the flexibility to explore different paths of study and seeing where they intersect.

What do you do outside of the classroom?
I participate in undergraduate research and facilitate education outreach through my living learning community.
