Beth Rieken is a Ph.D. candidate in Mechanical Engineering. She has a broad research base spanning a variety of topics within mechanical and aerospace engineering. She completed work on scramjet combustion at the University of Virginia and NASA as an undergraduate. As a Stanford Masters student, she worked in the Pruitt Microsystems Lab where she designed bio-MEMS devices for cell mechanobiology research applications. Since becoming a Ph.D. candidate, she has worked in the Hanson Research Lab researching laser diagnostics for combustion applications, including a year-long project at Sandia National Laboratories. Her experience in many different lab settings has given her the perspective and motivation to pursue engineering education research.
