Samantha (Sam) Brunhaver is a Ph.D. candidate in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford. Her primary research interests include engineering education, engineering career pathways, and engineering students’ transition from school into the workplace. Samantha’s dissertation explores the effects of social and cognitive factors on early career engineering graduates’ current occupation and future career plans. She is undertaking this work as part of the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Engineering Pathways Study (EPS).

Gary Lichtenstein, Ed.D., is Consulting Associate Professor in the Stanford School of Engineering, and principal of Quality Evaluation Designs, a consulting firm specializing in education evaluation, research, and policy. Gary has worked with DEL since 1998, studying issues related to retention and persistence along several segments of the engineering pathway, including K-12 education, undergraduate retention, and transition into the workforce. Lately, his focus has shifted to issues of recruitment, especially as high school students contemplate their college majors and at the point at which college seniors in engineering make decisions about their jobs and careers. Gary has twice been awarded the William Elgin Wickendon Award for the best research paper each year published in the ''Journal of Engineering Education''.
