Welcome to Steve Sahyun's Home Page

I am a physics Ph.D grad student at Oregon State University in Corvallis. My non-computer hobbies include juggling, rough terrain unicycling, rope walking, the SCA, and most recently learning to fiddle, although I'm not very good at that yet.

Martha Donnelly and I were recently married (December 7) at LeMoyne College in Syracuse, NY. Martha is a free-lance commercial illustrator, some of her works can be seen in Showcase (21st and 22nd editions, but not on their web site.) For our honeymoon, we took a trip to New Zealand (16 days) which was wonderful. We only stayed on the North Island, yet were able to go white water rafting, sea kayaking through mangrove trees, swim with dolphins (in the Bay of Plenty), visit the live volcano at White Island, and see the glow worm caves. We also had a three day stop in Hawaii which was fun, but a bit touristy.


My research group is the Science Access Project and my advisor is Dr. John Gardner. I am currently working on non-visual methods to represent information contained in graphs and pictures which are used in physics. Specifically, I am developing a web based test to compare and improve equivalency between visual and sonified (converting data into sound) graphs.

ASOSU Graduate Senate. This is the latest information of what I, and the other Grad Student Senators have been up to recently.

Places from my former lives:

Originally, I am from St. Paul, Minnesota. My undergrad education was at Grinnell College where I double majored in Physics and French. I then moved to MSUMontana State University in beautiful Bozeman, MT and received a M.S. degree in Physics.

Here are some useful places to go:
