Picture of Crystal Bray

Brief Biographical Sketch:

Third year Applied Physics graduate student, working on ultra fast optics with Professor David Reis at the SLAC National Laboratory. Trader from Berkeley, who still roots for Cal, used to be a part of a program called Cal NERDS (New Experiences for Research and Diversity in Science). Best quote from undergrad, "get your nerd on" which I think is quite fitting for a SPLASH event.
