It's different for everyone depending on which project you get put on. I was working with Dr. Shi doing experimental optics, whereas my colleagues were working in biology labs doing various bio work related to curing cancer. A typical day included coming in at 9am and aligning the mirrors and prisms and turning on the laser and all the equipment. I would then do some runs and then analyze them using LabVIEW and MATLAB, respectively. I would do this until 5 or 6pm and then return home.
