Terik hails from San Jose, California with a major in Geological Science and a minor in Dance. He conducted research with Daniel Austin in the chemistry of micrometeorite impact. He has successfully charged neutral quartz crystals for acceleration to meteorite velocity for laboratory impact studies, and while applying for the Goldwater was building a time-of-flight mass spectrometer to detect the chemical species resulting from these impacts.
