Alan Marionneaux was born in Augusta, GA, where he attended Lakeside High School. He is currently working on obtaining his undergraduate degree in the field of Bioengineering with a minor in Spanish language.
He is currently doing part-time research concerning the effects of nanoparticle sizes/polymer brush lengths on the AC Magnetic Susceptibility. Past research projects involved modeling the relationship between suspension concentration and AC Susceptibility (Clemson - The EUREKA! program). This model can be used as a nondestructive means to determine the concentration of unknown particle suspensions.
In his spare time, Alan loves watching college football, hanging his ENO hammock, mountain biking, rock climbing, ultimate frisbee, watching The Office, and doing anything outdoors.
