"I had my heart set on Michigan from the beginning,“ Elizabeth Cloos Dreyer, Electrical Engineering PhD Student, said. Dreyer works in the MURI Center for Dynamic Magneto-Optics, studying a new class of optical phenomena that relate to energy conversion and magnetism. “To me waves make sense. In electrical engineering, I knew that’s what I wanted to do. In order for me to effectively contribute to the world, I needed to learn more about optics.”
