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.
