My work focuses on additive manufacturing with functionaliced polymers for enhanced performance; for example improved strength or enhanced thermal conductivity
What is your passion? I love to travel and experience different countries and cultures; wherever I can get outdoors I do – preferably in the mountains with no cell reception.
What advice do you have for undergrads, grads, postdocs seeking careers in STEM fields? Build up a support network of mentors, peers and friends outside of your filed that give you honest advice. We all struggle sometimes and need different views to calibrate ourselves.
What do you like to do when you’re away from work? I try to spend as much time with my husband and friends & family as possible. When I am at home I have great joy at cooking – trying and developing new recipes.
