Board Members 2016

joeyUncroppedJoey Goodknight–President

Class of 2011.  In 2007 I, your intrepid President moved from the tiny hamlet of Nevada City, CA to Berkeley and I had the absolute time of my life!  Much to my chagrin, staying at Berkeley for graduate school would have been generally frowned upon so instead, I made my way to the lEast coast immediately after graduation to start studies towards a PhD in Chemical Physics.  While at Cal, I was a member and business manager for Noteworthy a cappella (perhaps you’ve seen us?) and a researcher in the lab of Chemistry Professor Rich Saykally.


geoffGeoff Liou–Treasurer

Class of 2013. I grew up in Fremont, California. At Cal, I majored in Molecular and Cell Biology with a concentration in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and worked in the lab of Ming Hammond. I have stayed in the sciences and am now in the Biology Ph.D. program at MIT. In my spare time, besides watching a wide variety of Cal sports, I had a small taste of representing Cal in intercollegiate athletics as a member of the Kendo Club.

BerlinpicKristine Rezai--Events Co-Chair

Class of 2015.  After growing up in Huntington Beach, CA, I moved to Berkeley, intent on studying the mysteries of the physical world.  I majored in Engineering Physics, and did research in the lab of Dmitry Budker.  At Cal, I spent most of my free time watching Cal football games (Go Bears!) and playing board games with friends.  Currently I live in Cambridge and am pursuing a Ph.D. in physics at Harvard.
