Lauren M. Peterson (B.S., Physics, 1966)

                                                       

I was an Adjunct Professor of EECS and University
of Michigan for 25 years.

I am married and have three children. I enjoy bicycling, swimming, and playing hockey and tennis. I have been doing basic and applied research in optics, remote sensing, and laser radar and quantum optics for 36 years for General Dynamics. I was an Adjunct Professor of EECS and University of Michigan for 25 years. I always enjoyed and looked forward to IT days when faculty and grad students came up with great games and demonstrations. I still remember doing second sound experiment in superfl uid liquid helium in senior lab. My favorite professors were Robert Pepin, Morris Blair, Jake Waddington and Joe Valasek. I now teach many of those same courses. I will say that I would rather take an exam in physics than create or grade one.
