    As a Biotechnology major, I have been able to utilize all aspects of my major in Dr. Salik's lab.
  • Perez

    Nicholas Perez »

    I have started working in Dr. Salik's lab in Spring 2013. I fabricated tapered fiber sensors. I also learned how to do 3D design and 3D printing.
  • Sanchez

    Martin Sanchez »

    My experience in Dr. Ertan Salik's laboratory has been absolutely wonderful. Working over the Summer of 2013 allowed me to contribute greatly to the biosensor research.
  • Tran

    Jonathan Tran »

    I am currently working as a research assistant in a computational physics laboratory under the advising of Dr. Alex Small. I have worked with Dr. Small since Fall 2011 with my classmates Ted Yoo and Shane Stahlheber investigating percolation on uniform lattices.
  • Witt

    Matthew Witt »

    I make microfluidic channels to flow liquids past the optical fiber biosensors, which has applications in healthcare and food safety. Working in a research lab and being able to contribute to a very important field such as healthcare is very exciting.
  • Yoo

    We study percolation theory in the computation lab under the supervision of Dr. Alex Small. Percolation is one of the simplest phase transitions that can be studied in graph theory, yet is not well understood.

    All in all, my time in Tucson was definitely eventful, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I walked away from this experience having gained a lot of knowledge about and respect for the people who actually do astronomy for a living, and I hope to one day join their ranks.
  • Lemon

    Courtney Lemon »

    This summer, I had the opportunity to work with Dr. Don McCarthy of the University of Arizona, where I basically spent a month up on Mt. Lemmon, Kitt Peak, Mt. Graham, and more.
  • Maldonado

    During the summer of 2012, I had the wonderful experience of working as a research assistant at the Steward Observatory at the University of Arizona.
  • Sexton

    Remington Sexton »

    As a physics major interested in stellar astrophysics, I find it very appropriate that I spent my summer in Tucson, a city whose temperature rivals that of the Sun's.
  • Vinson

    Alec Vinson »

    Over summer 2012 I was given the opportunity of working at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena. I was incredibly excited to learn that I would be getting a chance to intern there.

    The blistering summer sun shines from its perch in the painfully blue and utterly cloudless sky. As I walk, I can see the ripples of heat radiating up from the ground ahead of me.
