Alyssa M. Goncalves

I'm currently a master's student in Computer Science at Brandeis University. In the past, I've worked in R&D for electron emitters and written quality control software for electron optics systems in LabVIEW. I have a B.A. in Physics from Mount Holyoke College where I also did research in quantum dot photovoltaics.
