Ali Lasemi with Alma Mater

Favorite college memories: "Spending late nights in the Aerolab working with fellow students and spending late nights in 18C building rockets."

Immediate plans: "I will be continuing on to a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at Stanford University, studying numerical methods for computational fluid dynamics."

Future plans: "Hopefully finishing my Ph.D. and moving on to a full-time research position"
