Robert Starr is a “Science Scene” Life&Arts writer for the spring 2015 semester. He worked as a general Life&Arts writer in fall 2011; spring and fall 2012; spring, summer and fall 2013; and spring, summer and fall 2014. Robert, a physics graduate student from Oak Park, California, plans to graduate in May 2018 — maybe. Robert likes Hitchcock movies and sugary cereals with cartoon characters on the box. When he's not running, he's speaking too loudly about topics he knows nothing about.
