Our comprehensive approach allows CTA to provide our clients a full service architecture/engineering firm with some of the best talent available.
Mark Reiser Ph.D: After receiving my BS in physics in 2002, I have spent the better part of the last 10+ years as a graduate student at the University of Wyoming. After growing up in Wisconsin, I fulfilled my dream to move out west, where I spent the next 10+ years in Laramie, WY. I was a graduate student for the better part of the last decade, studying in gaining experience in two different fields: 1) physics & astronomy, and 2) counseling. In the area of physics & astronomy, I focused most of my energy into astronomy teaching and outreach. As a counselor, I became trained as a mental health counselor, and then worked as a school counselor for two years. Ultimately, I have always hoped to find a position that allowed me to combine my love of astronomy & physics with my passion for working with students. Just this past fall, in 2013, I began working here at the University of Montana in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, serving as the Academic Advisor - Recruitment & Retention Specialist. The position is an ideal combination of my background and interests, and I am eager to put my energies into helping our students develop and succeed!
