About

Sam Brunhaver is a Ph.D. candidate in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford. She also has a Ph.D. minor in Education. Her primary research focuses on the pathways of students and alumni in engineering fields. Her dissertation explores and models the factors that affect recent engineering alumni's plans to work in an engineering position. She is undertaking this work as part of the NSF funded Engineering Pathways Study (EPS).

Sam’s teaching interests include introductory engineering courses, solid mechanics courses, and design courses. Her teaching interests in education include research methods, course design, student development, and evaluation and assessment. At Stanford she has served as a co-instructor for a graduate engineering education seminar and as a teaching assistant for statics, finite element analysis, and design for manufacturing courses. Currently she contributes to the course redesign of ENGR Intro to Solid Mechanics. She is an invited member of the Stanford Mechanical Engineering Department ABET assessment committee and had served as an external evaluator for an NSF Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) Research Experience and Mentoring (REM) program at Stanford. 

Sam is a Stanford DARE (Diversifying Academia, Recruiting Excellence) Fellow. For the three years, she was co-president of the Stanford Mechanical Engineering Women’s Group.
