The Trojan Scholars Society (TSS) is association of Trustee, Presidential, Stamps, and Mork Scholars at the University of Southern California.  It’s great to be able to give back to one of the largest organizations on campus as the co-chair of Special Events! As a board, we get to plan all kinds of great activities for our scholars!
This summer I spent two weeks abroad in Guatemala for a class I took because of my cultural anthropology minor! We got to explore all the ruins and really delve into what makes the culture there unique.  It was such an incredible experience and our professor was so knowledgeable about everything we did!
The lab I work in focuses on cancer modeling. The ultimate goal the lab is to be able to predict the movement of cancer cells in the body in order to stop their spread. My research project is on computational modeling of cell movement, which means I try and use computer programs to predict what the cancer cells will do.

Hey guys! I’m Juliana Porter, an Industrial & Systems Engineering major and Cultural Anthropology Minor from Portland, Oregon.  I entered USC as undeclared engineering, and based on all the opportunities I chose ISE!  On campus I’m on the Officer Council of the Society of Women Engineers, and I’m also on the Executive Board for Trojan Scholar Society.  I’ve also had the opportunity to co-author a research paper already in computational modeling of cell movement!  This summer I interned at Eaton, and I also spent two weeks abroad in Guatemala through the Problems Without Passports Program!
