Hometown:Dallas,TX

Education: B.A. Physics, Washington University in St. Louis

Current Research Topic: Modulation of optical wavelengths at THz frequencies in semiconductors

Hobbies and Interests: Golf, Football, Cooking

About me: After the Southwest and the Midwest, the West Coast sounded like a wonderful place to spend my days gazing out the window longingly as I type away at a keyboard, and Santa Barbara has not disappointed.  The twelve month season of short-sleeved golf doesn’t hurt, either.

Jessica Clayton

Hometown: Lincoln, CA

Education: B.S. Physics, UC Merced

Current Research Topic: High field electron paramagnetic resonance for study of biological systems

Hobbies and Interests: Cooking, hiking, playing piano, martial arts

About Me: Having spent a few too many summers farming in the Sacramento heat, I decided to venture south in search of temperate weather and cool physics. Finding both to be in excess quantities in Santa Barbara, I now spend my days attempting to coerce electron spins into cooperation while simultaneously finding any excuse to be outdoors.
