What jobs did you have previously that led up to your career?
Hi! Right now I am a graduate student at UCSB. I am working on my PhD in materials science and engineering. I am at the beginning of my career, so I have not had any other jobs previously, but I will describe how I got to where I am. After high school, I went to Harvey Mudd College, where I majored in chemistry. During the Summers, I participated in undergraduate research programs at different labs to gain experience and figure out what I wanted to do. One Summer, I worked in bio-remediation at the Idaho National Laboratory, another Summer I studied lipid membranes at the Max Plank Institute in Germany, and another Summer I studied nanoparticles at the University of Pennsylvania. During the school year, I took classes and tutored other students in chemistry. During my Senior year of college, I decided I wanted to do research for a career, so I applied to PhD programs. Now I am in my fourth year of the Materials graduate program at UCSB where I study organic solar cells. I hope to graduate in a year or two.
