Staff Bios

Christy Cherrier
Lab Manager and Biology Lab Coordinator

Christy leads STEM's Laboratory Management team. She also works in the biology teaching labs, supporting lab sections.  Prior to joining UW Bothell in 2006, Christy worked as a research technician at Pioneer Hi-Bred, Iowa State University, and University of Oregon. 

 


 

Kelly Carter-Lynn
Biology Lab Coordinator

Kelly provides direct lab instructional support by coordinating lab and field-based labs for biology curricular areas. Kelly promotes a culture of safety and ensures compliance with lab safety regulations. She engages with faculty to aid in the planning and development of existing and new lab courses and activities. She also purchases, operates and maintains laboratory instruments and equipment; and supervises and trains student lab assistants.

 

Glen Gullickson
Chemistry Lab Coordinator

 

 

 

 


 

David Symon
Chemistry Lab Coordinator

Dr. David Symon provides instructional support for three chemistry lab spaces. He provides in-lab assistance to faculty and students. He works with faculty to develop new lab exercises and redesigns existing experiments to be more efficient and effective. He maintains chemistry labs and oversees chemistry lab safety compliance by setting up lab equipment, inspecting, testing, adjusting, and repairing chemistry instrumentation and writing standard operating procedures. David also trains others in the safe and effective operation of chemistry lab equipment and instrumentation.

 

KT Kim
Electrical Engineering Lab Coordinator

 

 

 

 


 

Troy Dunmire
Mechanical Engineering Lab Coordinator

Troy coordinates instructional support for three mechanical engineering labs and a machine shop, managing all equipment and use of space. He assists faculty with developing new courses to support the growing mechanical engineering degree and develops and proposes new lab exercises from a general idea or fundamental engineering concept. He also reviews and redesigns existing experiments to be more efficient and effective.

 

Sam Shupe
Physics Lab Coordinator

Sam started his UW Bothell adventures in Autumn 2006 as part of the school's inaugural freshmen class, pursuing a business degree.  But sophomore year he fell in love with chemistry and never looked back.  As a student, he worked for the Writing and Communication Center, the Career Center, and the Office of Student Life as an Orientation Leader.  He also founded The Husky Herald newspaper, and served as Editor-in-Chief for its first 3 years of publication.  In the summer of 2011, after graduating with a BS in Environmental Science with a focus on earth systems sciences, he worked as a member of the Jaffe Research Group, investigating various field trapping methods for different semi-volatile mercury compounds using GC/MS analysis.  Sam joined STEM in January 2013 at a part time chemistry coordinator.  These days you can find him on the 3rd floor of Discovery Hall, usually in the physics or environmental science teaching labs.
