    Stephanie O'Sullivan, Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence, earned her Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the Missouri Science and Technology University.

    Chemist Lin Chen is recognized internationally for her ground-breaking contributions in the excited-state structural studies using X-ray transient absorption spectroscopy. She was honored in 2012 as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science for her "contributions to understanding structural dynamics of molecular excited states with special emphasis on problems related to renewable energy."

    Alyson Yamada is a woman with a unique story. Prior to attending Stanford, she was a dedicated ballet dancer. But due to an unfortunate injury that ended her dance career, Alyson was inspired to research something that could help her injury and decided to study mechanical engineering. She is now majoring in Biomechanical Design and Engineering, an individually designed major within the School of Engineering.

    J’Tia Taylor is a nonproliferation technical specialist in Argonne’s Nuclear Engineering division. "I work mainly in the area of export control, assessing technologies for their nonproliferation implications. I look at a lot of the emerging technologies presented to the U.S. government that are not necessarily on the market. My job is to analyze what the technology does and what it’s used for, assess how it can be used and determine its implications for weapons of mass destruction."
