About Us

The Equilibrium was founded in 2013 by Nhat-Dang Do, Peter Dykstra, and Ahna Neustadt. With the help of Provost Steven Adler, The Equilibrium became more than an idea. The first issue of the journal was published in 2015 and has been printing annually ever since.

The journal is intended to not only be an opportunity for students involved in research to showcase their work and form a supportive community, but is also a way to get other students inspired and involved with research. Our mission is to help bring UC San Diego students together, transcending differences in majors and disciplines, to stimulate academic discourse, and exchange of ideas and research at the undergraduate level. Thus, The Equilibrium is an interdisciplinary journal, publishing research from any field of study.
