NEXT Research Engineer


I grew up in Abilene, TX down the street from ACU and always knew I would end up coming here for college. I graduated in May 2020, with two degrees from ACU: a BS in Engineering, and a BA in Global Studies with a minor in French. I am excited by the work we do at NEXT and I know contributions I give to this workplace will help create a more meaningful reality for everyone affected by our research.

What you like about NEXT?

work and milestones constantly wrap back to their main goals of meeting the world's critical needs: cancer research, energy production, and clean water, and are all backed consistently by the Christian values upheld by ACU.
