Dinner with our Growing Group!

With a third undergraduate, a rotation student, and another graduate student to join in the spring, our larger group had one more dinner this semester while Uwe was still in town at the Vintage Brewing Company!

We missed Noah at the dinner and hope that he feels better soon!

Welcome, rotation student Roberta Candela!

Roberta Candela is a rotating biophysics student who most recently was working in a bioengineering lab. She recently graduated from Arizona State with a B.S in Biophysics and was a member of Dr. Scott Sayres’ Ultrafast Laser lab. During rotations she will be exploring how best to apply physics to the fields of biology, chemistry, or physics.
