Dr. Donald Mueller, he helped me though many tough courses and always had something positive to say.  Dr. Bongsu Kang, he allowed me to be a research assistant for him and taught me how to approach very complex projects by breaking them down.  Dr. Mark Masters, he was influential in making me truly want to understand how natural phenomenons work.
