Shayne Siegman, MS

Accenture, Technology Consulting Manager, Los Angeles

Shayne received his B.S. and M.S. in Chemical Engineering from UCLA, and fun fact – he was a member of the Segura Lab for 5 out of his 6 years on campus! #dedicatedundergrad. His master’s degree was centered around the development of porous hydrogels as scaffolds for non-viral gene delivery in both in vitro and in vivo models. We feel like the Segura halls still ring with Shayne yelling “OHHH HAIIII TALARRRR!!!” to greet Talar each day. (Does ‘Shivastar!!!’ mean anything to you?) But if he had to choose what he misses most, he’d say it’s working with the really sharp and motivating people that are drawn to the Segura Lab. And he offers this advice to the newbies: “Failed experiments are part of the process. Don’t get down on yourself when an experiment goes wrong – it’s a learning opportunity.”
