Research Associate

"I am a graduate TA for the EBIO department so this is not an ordinary job for people who are not graduate students. But, overall, I love teaching and educating my students. I am also a mentor and that brings me tons of joy. If this was a normal career I would recommend it only if the pay was higher."

"The CU Buff Club is a great place to work. The team is very close and really cares about the well-being of the student-athletes they serve. They are always happy to help when a new employee has questions and makes everyone feel at home. Also, the work they do is very charitable. Most of the student-athletes would not be able to afford CU without the help of the CU Buff Club."

University of Colorado Employee

"I found my experience in this group somewhat unpleasant. My supervisor is extremely knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to technical questions, a great professor. Nonetheless, as an undergraduate student, I never quite felt his support nor interest in the project he initially gave me. Often felt confused by what I was told to do and the outcome expected. He tried to give me an opportunity to use my creativity but in the end he always had a better solution, even when sometimes his solution was extremely similar to my previous attempts. I, however, am very thankful for the opportunity he gave me. He clearly did not have time for me, but he gave me an opportunity anyway."

Not only have I been able to take my engineering abilities to the next level working with really cool hands on projects, but I also have worked with really smart and competitive people.

"The Slide-Ring materials project group in the Bruns lab focuses on synthesis, characterization of novel material – polyrotaxane for making glasses, gels and polymer coatings. My current research focuses on engineering a polyrotaxane coating for Poly-ethylene glycol based Micro-bubbles to be used in theranostics for molecular imaging.
