Hometown: St. Charles, MO

MSE Undergraduate, Claire recently received the Frank and Rosa Rhodes Scholarship.  Claire is originally from St. Charles, MO and is currently a junior at Cornell.  Cornell University appealed to Claire due to the depth and breadth of its engineering program, and she chose Materials Science for its “incredible versatility and for its focus on the intersection of chemistry, physics, and engineering.”

This summer Claire will be interning at Argonne National Laboratory, where she will be working on the development of vanadium oxide nanoparticle/polymer composite thermochromic window films.

In addition to excelling in her undergraduate education, Claire is a member of the Cornell Materials Society and works at the Mann Library Makerspace.
