Hallie Zeller ’12 (Bridgewater, N.J.) likes to understand things, from how they work on the atomic level to what they’re like on gigantic scales. Mechanical engineering, she says, is the best way to gain this understanding.
Hallie Zeller ’12 at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers annual student conference
Zeller recently got to experience the field on a gigantic scale. She, along with Kevin Ling ’12 (Winchester, Mass.), presented research at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) annual student conference in Minneapolis, Minn. Zeller took home first prize in her division for her research on biofilms, while Ling placed second in his division for his research on a special kind of polymer.
