Improved measurement of laser beam waist on dynamic light scattering instrument. Performed mathematical analysis, experimental setup modification, programming, and data acquisition and analysis. June – Aug 2011

Other Experience

Graduate Research Assistant, Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotech, Duke University, Durham, NC
Helping to develop a template that will allow researchers to enter data into a database of nanotechnology toxicology results. Also curating data from published studies into database. Database will eventually be used to statistically predict toxicological effects of similar nanotechnologies. October 2015

Graduate Researcher, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA
