My name is Kon Aoki, and I am a freshman majoring in physics and computer science at Colorado College. I have just applied for the IceCube Neutrino Astrophysics REU position at University of Wisconsin River Falls. I saw that you went on an expedition with Dr. Jim Madsen who is in charge of the REU along with Dr. Suruj Seunarine on Polar Trek and wanted to reach out. I have not been able to get in touch with neither Dr. Madsen nor Dr. Seunarine and was wondering if I could receive your help. The deadline of the REU is Feb. 10, and I would like to just get a confirmation that my application has been sent successfully. I apologize for the rush and rudeness for directly contacting you like this. Thank you so much for your help. I hugely appreciate it. It would also great if I could hear about your experiences at the IceCube Observatory if you have time!
Thank you so much for reading such a long message.
