At VTU, Aaliyah was the head of a project researching an experimental schematic for the Mark VII upgrade of the Pip-Boy 2000 Mark VI. She had an office on campus but was known not to use it, instead preferring to work at her home in Summersville.
- Vault Dweller: "Can you tell me more about the schematic you're looking for?"
Penelope Hornwright: "A doctoral candidate named Aaliyah was heading development on it, before the war. Brilliant stuff. With any luck, she's in a vault right now, but I'd suggest taking a look around her old home in Summersville. She never used her office on campus."
