Soraya Terrab

Soraya is from Tangier, Morocco. She has earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors in Physics from Bryn Mawr College in 2013. Spending her undergraduate summers conducting engineering research at Swarthmore College (2011) and the MIT Summer Research Program (2012), Soraya has been motivated to pursue her graduate studies in applied science and engineering fields. As a senior in college, she worked in Dr. Daniel S. Gianola's group in the Department of Materials Science at the University of Pennsylvania under the joint advisory of Bryn Mawr College professor Dr. Xuemei M. Cheng. She worked with a PhD candidate, Lisa Chen, in characterizing a temperature-controlled system for a MEMS-based nanomechanical tensile testing system for Palladiun nanowhiskers. After spending her first post-graduate summer completing the characterization of the temperature-controlled system ( and testing ALD surface treatment of Pd nanowhiskers, Soraya had developed a wide range of experimental skills, including electron microscopy, digital image correlation, system characterization, ellipsometry, and ALD, and strong interests in materials science and microsystems. Soraya is now a first-year graduate student at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder. She works in Dr. Victor Bright's group developing electrowetting microprisms for variable, microscale optical applications, such as brain imaging
