Kristen “Kat” Ziegler is a senior in honors physics and math at Purdue University. Her career goal is to become a professor of high-energy physics. Although Ziegler has never had a female professor teach one her physics classes, she was thoroughly inspired to see a room full of female physicists at a regional conference held at Purdue in January. “For one thing, seeing 100 female physicists in one room is pretty empowering,” she said. “Just having these women be there, being able to talk to us about family issues, the unique thing that happens with trying to balance children with post doc-ships and what not. It just gives you hope that you can do it too.”
