Peter’s interests are soft matter physics, biophysics, and golden retrievers.
Shane Jacobeen – PHD Student, Physics, 2014-present
Shane started at GT after earning his B.S. in physics from Lebanon Valley College. Originally drawn to physics by a fascination with understanding how things work, he is currently interested in pursuing a career in industry. Outside of physics, his interests include working out, being outdoors, and exploring the south.
Ben is primarily interested in exploring the intersection of theory and experiment, and how we may use novel computational and manufacturing techniques to bring them closer together. Outside of research, he is a competitive powerlifter with the Georgia Tech Barbell Club and “enjoys” driving himself insane by correcting the many scientific misunderstandings he finds on the internet.
Jonathan is investigating the relationship between structure and mechanics in experiments. He hails from St. Louis and is thus a Cardinals fan. He is also an excellent (and very knowledgeable) baker.
