Sarah is a first-year Ph.D. student in the group. Before coming to Berkeley this summer, Sarah earned her B.S. in Environmental Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in Austin, TX.
Sarah’s research currently revolves around graphite. In her first year, she plans to use SEM/EDS, XRD, Raman spectroscopy, and optical microscopy to characterize molten-salt-exposed graphite tribology samples. The opportunity also exists to investigate decontaminating irradiated graphite for the purpose of lower-level waste disposal.
When she is not focused on her classes or her research, Sarah enjoys being outdoors. She has been running more and more since moving to a place with cooler weather, and she loves all of the trails the Bay Area has to offer (there aren’t many hills in Texas). Sarah is also excited to explore San Francisco as she misses her friends and downtown proximity in Austin greatly.
