Personal Information

As of Summer 2001:

My name is Fernando Enrique Ziegler. I am currently an undergraduate college student at The University of Texas at Austin majoring in Physics. In Austin, I work under the guidence of Dr. Manfred Fink in Physics and Dr. Philip L. Varghese in Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics. The current study is of conformers for both n-butane and glycene using absorption spectroscopy with tunable diode lasers.

On a personal note, I was born in Caracas, Venezuela and lived in Mexico for a few years. I have been in the United States ever since I was ten years old and have lived in Texas ever since. I graduated from Sam Rayburn High School in Pasadena, Texas (near Houston) and I attended Stephen F. Austin State University for a few years before transfering to UT-Austin.

For the summer of 2001, I was accepted in the Research Experience for Undergraduates Program at State University of New York at Stony Brook. My advisor for the summer is Dr. John Noé. This is the webpage that I will have for my research here at SUNY at Stony Brook.
