SUNY Poly student, alumni receive exciting internships
SUNY Poly student Ana Segarceanu and recent graduate Aleksandr (Sasha) Filippov have leveraged their SUNY Poly experience to secure exciting summer internships with the help of SUNY Poly faculty and staff:
Ana Segarceanu, a rising SUNY Poly senior undergraduate, is interning with Stat Peel, Ltd. in Glarus, Switzerland this summer. She is expanding on her occupational health and safety training on the Brenner Research Team as she works with Stat Peel to develop and assess instruments for detecting airborne nanoparticulates in work environments. During her 14-week internship, Ana will be putting her training in nano health and safety to use as she contributes to advancing the state of the science in occupational exposure assessment for the nanotechnology workforce.
Aleksandr (Sasha) Filippov, a recent SUNY Poly graduate, who received a Bachelor of Science in Nanoscale Engineering, is interning with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) this summer in Silver Spring, MD. He will be a Fellow in the Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Education’s (ORISE) Research Participation Program, managed by Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) and will be working with the Office of Pharmaceutical Quality’s Science Staff within the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. As an ORISE Fellow, Sasha will be contributing to ongoing efforts to develop nanoscale analytical methods using enhanced dark field microscopy and hyperspectral imaging (EDFM-HSI) and Raman spectroscopy. This fall, he will begin a PhD program in Molecular and Cellular Biology at the Irell & Manella Graduate School of Biological Sciences, part of the Beckman Research Institute at the City of Hope National Medical Center in Duarte, CA.
