Brandi is a rising senior at Cal Poly Pomona studying physics with an emphasis in optics. At her home campus, she conducts research on biconically tapered optical fibers used in biological sensing applications. She is at the University of Michigan this summer to participate in a NSF funded REU hosted by the Center of Photonics and Multiscale Nanomaterials. While not doing research, Brandi enjoys exploring Ann Arbor, reading in the park or eating great food.
Brandi is working with Peter on the investigation of spintronic phenomena in chalcogenide thin films.
