“I always knew that I wanted to be a chemist.”
Stefanie describes how an exciting “Take Your Daughter to Work Day” convinced her to become a chemist. She considers chemistry to be a bridge between biology and physics that can help explain observations made in everyday life.
Chemical Engineering Postdoctoral Researcher in Prof. Robert Langer’s Lab
MIT graduate student ’12 in Prof. Tim Swager’s Lab
After finishing my PhD in the Swager lab, I started working as a Post-doc in the Langer lab, where I’ll use chemistry to design synthetic cartilage. Here, I’m drawing ideas from the chemistry of molecules that naturally occur in the human body.
Both! I was on the swim team in high school and crew team in college. I also played piano, violin, viola, and marimba.
I would learn to be fluent in another language, probably German (I only speak English and a tiny bit of German).
