An assistant professor in the physics department, Sara Callori is on the steering committee and serves as a mentor for Cal-Bridge, a bridge program between the CSU and UC systems aimed at increasing the number of underrepresented minorities earning Ph.D.s in physics, astronomy and related fields.
She is also working to redesign all levels of instructional labs in the physics department including facilitating a departmental faculty learning community for lower-division labs. She is also designing the new upper-division lab sequence for major students, which includes creating writing intensive lab courses.
Callori received both her Ph.D. and master’s degree in physics from Stony Brook University and joined CSUSB in 2015. She was a contestant on the legendary game show “Jeopardy” where she came in second place.
