Meet The Servant Team

I am in the process of earning my PhD in theoretical chemical physics at Penn State, and in my spare time I organize special events for PSCG such as our Super Bowl party, Operation Christmas Child efforts, and the annual Fall Retreat! Originally, I come from West Chester, Pennsylvania by way of Bucknell University, where I earned my bachelors’ degree in chemistry in 2014. As the daughter of two Penn State graduates, the sister of one, the niece of four, and the granddaughter of four more, I grew up loving Penn State and especially Penn State football! I was thrilled when God made it clear that this was the right place for me to complete my PhD after graduating from Bucknell due to the strong sense of family I feel here at Penn State. At work, I study the theory and practice of coarse grained modeling, and in the future, I hope that I am called to teach computational chemistry at an undergraduate institution. In my free time, I enjoy reading, knitting, and yelling at the TV while watching football games. I also love dogs, traveling, all things Scottish, and ice cream from the Berkey Creamery (naturally).

Hi, my name is Ben Sheng, and I am excited to serve on the PSCG Servant Team. I am a 4th year PhD Student in the Statistics Department at Penn State. My current research focuses on spatiotemporal methods to predict HIV prevalence at more local levels. I have been in PSCG for several years now, and it has been a meaningful part of my grad school experience. I have made great friends here, and I have grown spiritually and emotionally. Outside of school, I am interested in short distance running and Christian rap. I look forward to meeting you.

I am a third-year part-time Master’s Student in the Information Science Department of the College of IST studying Cybersecurity/Information Assurance through World Campus. I also work full-time as a Programmer/Analyst for the College of Education in the Chambers Building. I’m originally from York, Pennsylvania, about two hours southeast of State College. When I’m not studying or working, I enjoy playing music, singing, tinkering around with home electronics, and watching Penn State Football. My time here at Penn State has been a tremendous blessing and I’m grateful to be given the opportunity to serve with PSCG’s student leadership.
