My name is Siavash Sean Etesham, I’m a Physics major and a junior level transfer student at Bakersfield College. Once I transfer to a four year school, I plan on double majoring in Chemistry. My goal with respect to this competition is to better understand spectrographs and optical physics. Hopefully sometime in the foreseeable future I’m able to apply the knowledge I gain to either a place of
employment, class or research.
My name is Daniel Lopez and I am a physic’s major at Bakersfield College. I will be looking to transfer to University of California San Diego in the fall of 2013. My ultimate goal after transferring is to study physics in order to open my mind to new engineering techniques for designing the energy of the future. I’m looking forward to working with my team during this competition and welcome any challenges it brings forth.
My name is Devery Lee Taylor Sturges, mathematics major. After I finish up my undergraduate studies at Bakersfield College I plan on transferring to University of California, with an aspiring eye on Berkeley in particular. Though this project marks my first excursion into the research applications and physics of solar spectroscopy my intention is to apply whatever experience I gain through the design, construction and implementation of our project in my eventual career as a scientist.
My name is Ryan Dion Taylor and I am currently a junior level transfer attending Bakersfield College with intentions of transferring to the University fo California Santa Barbra in the Fall of 2013, majoring in Chemical and Materials Engineering. I have a great fascination with chemical sciences and properties of materials analysis and hope to someday contribute to the research of renewable and alternative energy technology. I have worked in the field of conventional fuel analysis for over four years now, and I am very excited to expand my scientific interests to include optics with this spectrograph competition. My natural desire to expand my knowledge and strong love for competition will no doubt be showcased in full through the National Student Solar Spectrograph Competition.
