He is currently finishing his work doing research for the Uribe-Romo lab synthesizing light harvesting organic linkers for Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) and is set up to start research within the Kinesiology department in the fall. Outside of class and research, Joey enjoys powerlifting competitively, cooking, playing basketball, and going to Taco Bell any chance he can get.
Faculty Mentor: Dr. Stephen Kuebler
Dr. Stephen M. Kuebler received the D.Phil. degree in chemistry from the University of Oxford and the B.S. degree in chemistry and B.A. in German from Tulane University. Dr. Kuebler joined the faculties of CREOL and the Department of Chemistry in August 2003 and was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in May 2008. His research interests include materials and processes for 3D nano- and microfabrication, use of these techniques for creating nanophotonic structures and devices, nonlinear optical materials and photochemistry.
Elli is a junior studying Computer Science and Biology. Their passions are learning and outer space, and they hope to someday work with robotic systems to grow hydroponics without human intervention. After college, they hope to get a graduate degree in Agriculture and Biosytems Engineering, and then go to work in the hydroponics industry. When they are not studying or working with the UCF Techrangers, Elli can often be found kayaking, going on hikes, playing videogames, and designing phone apps.
