2021 Science Envoy
Jeske Dioquino is a second-year PhD student in Physics at UC Berkeley. She works with Prof. Holger Müller on the development of a laser phase plate for phase-contrast electron microscopy. Jeske’s research gives her the opportunity to study real-world applications of fundamental physics, work with lasers, and learn a bit about biological imaging along the way. She hopes to use science communication in outreach to encourage more young women and under-represented minorities to study physics.
