Deano Farinella (B.S. Physics)


My advisor was Professor Jochen Mueller. Now I am a Teaching Assistant/Graduate Student at UC – Irvine.

I enjoy hiking and backpacking when I can. I am currently working with lasers and plasmas to study fundamental physics. My favorite memories come from staying up all night working on homework and studying with my classmates in SPS. The courses I enjoyed most were introduction to Astrophysics - Robert Gehrz; MXPII - Kurt Wick/Jeremy Mans; Galactic Dynamics - Liliya Williams; and Introduction to Particle Physics - Dan Cronin-Hennessy.
