Career Goals "To be a successful research scientist in either industry or with a start-up company. I hope to develop technology that has a great impact on society as a whole and helps alleviate an important issue affecting the community, i.e. cancer, crime, illness, etc."
Values "My most important value is family and friends. I value honesty, hard work, kindness, and perseverance."

Background "I am from Stafford, VA. I chose UVA for graduate school because I really enjoyed the people that I met during visitation weekend, I found the research in multiple groups very interesting, I absolutely love Charlottesville, I wanted to be close to my family (still live in Northern VA), and most importantly, my wife and I love the state of Virginia."
Charlie Clark travelled to the West Palm Beach Sheriff's Office (PBSO) forensic laboratory for external evaluation of the SONIC system, an analytical instrument capable of separating sperm cells from epithelial cell lysate using acoustic force. The instrument was also sent to the Mesa Police Department for testing.
