Charlie is a Junior at CU and is pursuing concurrent BS/MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering. Outside of ASME he is a researcher at CU's Advanced Medical Technologies Laboratory, where he is investigating the locomotive mechanics of in-vivo robots. He is an avid pianist and his all-nighters usually have something to do with playing into the late hours of the night when he should have been getting real work done. Outside of music he enjoys motorcycling and winter sports (though not at the same time), and as a result he has developed a deep love for the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Charlie hopes to eventually pursue a career in motorsports or high-performance automotive design, but is also interested in the energy industry.
As a modern day Renaissance man, Jim Cezo truly exemplifies that variety is the spice of life. His interests encompass everything from architecture to zoology and are expanding on a daily basis. Whether Jim is hiking through the vast wilderness of Colorado or spending all night in the lab, he always makes sure his top priority is to have fun! Jim now continues his journey as a lifelong student at the University of Colorado at Boulder working toward his Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering. He is currently combining his interests in medicine and technology through research on the mechanics of tissue fusion.
Millie comes from a small town in Northwest Colorado called Craig. She chose CU because of its excellent engineering program, and couldn't be happier with her choice. She was excited about graduating in May 2012, but has decided she'd miss this place too much, so she's staying here an extra year to complete the BS/MS program in Design. Skiing, traveling, running, soccer, volleyball and dodgeball are all activities Millie enjoys when she's not spending late nights at the Engineering Center. To keep herself sane, she has a strict "no homework on Friday" policy.
Scott Bunch is currently an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He is primarily interested in the mechanical properties of atomically thin materials such as graphene. He received his B.S. degree in Physics from Florida International University (2000) and a Ph.D. in Physics (2008) from Cornell University where he studied the electrical and mechanical properties of graphene. After finishing his Ph.D, he spent 3 months as a postdoctoral researcher in the Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics at Cornell University studying nanoelectromechanical systems before joining the faculty at CU Boulder in 2008. His awards include a Ph.D. fellowship from Lucent Technologies, Bell Laboratories (2000-2004), the DARPA MTO Young Faculty Award (2008), and the NSF CAREER Award (2011).
