As part of her studies, Tiffany participated in classes at Penn State University in their Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology program. In her free time, she is usually working on some sort of craft, listening to music, or watching history shows.

Paris Reuel

Graduate Student

Paris Reuel's current research interests are in the bonding nature of lanthanide and aluminum metal centers. Prior to joining the Altman lab, Reuel was a student intern at Sandia National Labs researching and developing novel lanthanide, aluminum, scandium, yttrium, precursors for processing into materials with application in obscurants, precipitation agents, and thermal and radiation resistance. Reuel received a B.S. in Chemistry and a B.S. in Statistics with honors from the University of New Mexico. In his free time Reuel likes to play tennis, games, and enjoys spending time on the trails hiking and camping.
