Zack Weaver 

I am excited to serve as your UDR for the 2014-2015 school year ! I am currently a junior dual majoring in physics and bio-physics. I currently do research at MIT on closed loop electrochemical feedback and inducer control of cells as well as fuel cells. I plan on looking at graduate school programs in engineering. I grew up just outside of DC and currently live in western Massachusetts. Please feel free to contact me at with any questions or concerns.

Emily Pruc

I am so glad to be returning as one of your two UDRs for the 2014 - 2015 school year. I am currently a senior double majoring in physics and chemistry. I am currently doing research in nonlinear dynamics with the Epstein group in the chemistry department and am studying the CDIMA reaction with my adviser Professor Milos Dolnik. After Brandeis I intended to pursue a PhD in physics and hope to work in academia one day. I was born and raised in Chicago Illinois and am an amateur animator as well as a huge fan of classic cinema. Feel free to email me with questions, concerns, opinions, and thoughts at
