Student Assistant.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, CA.
Scan and index geothermal well documents as part of a project between LLNL and the California Oil & Gas Division.
July 1997 - Present.

Independent Study with Dr. Roger Bland.

San Francisco State University, San Francisco, CA.
Wrote IDL programs in order to analyze data collected from the Three-Mile Slough in the San Joaquin region as a stepping stone for the determination of the direction and volume of the net water flow. Participated in weekly team meetings that included discussion of what had been accomplished, solved current problems, and determined the next course of action to obtain the group's goals.
January - December 1996.

Research Assistant for Dr. Barbara Neuhauser.

San Francisco State University, San Francisco, CA.
Operated equipment used in the production and analyzation of thin films such as a sputtering rig, optical aligner, and nanospectrometer.
Summer 1995.

Research Assistant for Dr. Carl Bleil.

Oakland University, Rochester, MI.
Assisted in the development of a system that will produce silicon and germanium ribbons at a lower cost/higher usable yield than current manufacturing processes. Tested metals used in the system to determine their reaction to certain temperatures in a hydrogen gas environment. Learned pipe soldering techniques and ran miscellaneous equipment tests.
October 1993 - February 1994.

Independent Study with Dr. Gopalan Srinivasan.

Oakland University, Rochester, MI.
Experimented with various materials such as thin films specifically barium hexaferrite to determine what material/combination of materials will produce the greatest magnetization yet lowest cost when mass produced in industry. Responsibilities included making the target, substrate preparation, sputtering, and magnetization testing..
September - December 1993.
