My name is Ryan Bailey-Crandell, I am currently a first-year graduate student in Physics at The Ohio State University. I am originally from Portland Oregon, and I did my undergrad at Oregon State University with a major in Physics. My research is in the optospintronics of 2D materials, and I am also very excited about point defects for quantum information applications. I became involved with Polaris after becoming a mentor in the program. Polaris allows me to help young students establish themselves professionally and grow in an invaluable way. In my free time, I enjoy staying active, meditating, and studying history.

Mary Rickel and is an undergraduate Astronomy and Astrophysics, Physics double major with a minor in Mathematics at The Ohio State University. Last year, she was a mentee in the Polaris Program. In her time as a Polaris Mentee, she gained valuable research skills and learned how to get more involved with diversity, equity, and inclusion programs. Along with becoming much more passionate about AGNs (Active Galactic Nuclei), she is very interested in continuing to work with Polaris, The Access Network, and the SciAccess Initiative Project. In her free time, she loves to read, write, exercise, and spend time with friends!
