Biography

Caitlin is originally from Seattle Washington. She completed her B.S. in Applied Physics at Linfield College in McMinnville Oregon. Her undergraduate thesis project was on “Modeling the Behavior of the Graphene to Liquid Interfaces in an Electrolytic Liquid”. Caitlin spent the summers between 2014 and 2016 interning with The Boeing Company as a Systems Engineer. Her combined interest in material science and the aerospace industry lead her to pursue further education in composites. She is currently working towards a master’s degree with a focus on per-gelation behavior of composite prepreg.
