Samantha Stout

Materials Science and Engineering

Samantha's interest in analytical methods for materials science stems from
her previous research experiences which focused on nanotechnology applied
to medicine. In her current research, she is working on developing
methodologies for materials analysis and spectral diagnostic techniques
where the "patients" are now artifacts of cultural heritage, and can be
hundreds of years old! Stout came to UC San Diego after receiving her
B.S. in materials science and engineering from Cornell University in
Ithaca, NY. She received her M.S. in materials science and engineering at
the University of California, San Diego, where she is currently working on
her PhD. When not working on her research, Samantha enjoys hiking,
cooking, and playing hockey and tennis.
