The Cal Lutheran Experience

My research focuses on a piece of software called HyperTxt, an HTML pre-processor. HTML is the language all websites are written in, and since its creation in 1989, it has seen little change in contrast to the way that the web has evolved. HyperTxt hopes to change this by making HTML more powerful and adding on features that other web tools offer.

Scientific curiosity deserves to be nurtured at all stages of the educational journey. It is a great privilege to work alongside students as their curiosity matures into research and discovery.

My internship with the Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management prepared me greatly for my next steps after Cal Lutheran. Working side by side with a geologist, geophysicist, and petroleum engineer has given me insight into the industry I couldn't have previously imagined. This experience is helping me prepare for graduate school.
