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.

Tua studies turning ideas into improvements in product design, entrepreneurship, management, and teaching. She has worked in the founding team of the [http://designfactory.aalto.fi Design Factory], a multidisciplinary experimentation platform in Aalto University, Finland, for students, teachers, researcher, practitioners and budding entrepreneurs. In the Designing Education Lab, Tua works in a project investigating how different experiences shape engineering students' subsequent willingness and confidence in pursuing innovation and entrepreneurship. Building on the [http://epicenter.stanford.edu/page/engineering-majors-survey Engineering Majors Survey], the current study focuses on the role of initial work experiences. Tua is also conducting a longitudinal study of opportunity construction with entrepreneurs from different backgrounds and ecosystems.
