The Cal Lutheran Experience

My internship with the Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management prepared me greatly for my next steps after Cal Lutheran. Working side by side with a geologist, geophysicist, and petroleum engineer has given me insight into the industry I couldn't have previously imagined. This experience is helping me prepare for graduate school.

History Pedagogy

I chose Cal Lutheran because of their teaching credential program. However, I also fell into place in the history program for my undergraduate degree. I knew I would be at home and comfortable with my major and the people the moment I had my first academic advising appointment with Dr. Reaves. She made me feel at home and provided me with the tools I needs to graduate on time and successfully.

During my research, I created quantum simulations to observe the behavior and characteristics of the superconductive material strontium ruthenate. Something exciting I learned in the process was how this material behaves unconventionally compared to other known superconductors by exhibiting half-flux states.
