Kristine Black (B.S. 1975)


After graduation I received a M.S. in Cell Biology in 1981 and an M.S. in Materials Science in 1983.

I am married with two step-children and four grandchildren. I use my creative skills to make handmade gift cards and organize craft drawers. I worked for thirty years in microelectronics and medical devices and retired in 2008. So many great teachers - Kaufmanis, Broadhurst, Hammermesh and they spent time with us. Hammermesh used to take us to lunch and tell us about the Manhattan project! I enjoyed Broadhurst's measurement class which taught us how to apply the theory to real-life applications.
