Mike Henninger[Email: henninge, followed by @media.mit.edu]
Mike Henninger is getting his Ph.D. in physics at MIT. Mike is a product of Northwestern University's Integrated Science Program, where he triple majored in physics, math, and integrated science. After graduating, he joined the Peace Corps and worked as a science teacher in Ghana for two years. Mike received a Hugh Hampton Young Memorial Fellowship and a NDSEG Graduate Fellowship. In the lab, he works on projects at the interface between physics and neuroscience.
