Gabi grew up in Minnesota, and graduated summa cum laude in 2023 from Scripps College, where she studied physics and German. As an undergraduate, she worked in a whole variety of areas of physics—including tracking motility patterns of single-celled organism Stentor coeruleus during regeneration and using models of E. coli networks to predict functions as complex as video before building an optical tweezers setup her senior year and accidentally falling in love with optics.


Rae grew up in Arizona and graduated from Arizona State University with a B.S. in physics in 2022. At ASU, Rae became involved in the CXFEL lab and stayed there for a year after graduation working with high power ultrafast lasers. Now Rae works in the KM group at CU boulder developing laser systems. Outside of physics Rae enjoys movies,  ceramics, and general nerdy gaming activities.


Clay grew up in southwest Pennsylvania and received a B.S. in Physics with a minor in Mathematics from Clarion University of Pennsylvania in 2022. As an undergraduate, he worked on a variety of research projects including developing aerogels for thermal insulation on high speed aircraft as an intern at NASA's Glenn Research Center, investigating materials for photonic device applications at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and developing new methods for improving scanning electron microscope measurements with Professor Chunfei Li at Clarion University.
