Hawley is a 3rd year PhD Student in Elizabeth Nance’s lab in the Department of Chemical Engineering. She gets the pleasure of doing her research in analyzing and quantifying brain cell morphology with data science methods. Alongside her research, she has sat as the president for the Association of Chemical Engineering Graduate Students, as a senator in the Graduate and Professional Student Senate, and on the executive board of Women in Chemical Engineering. Besides serving her department, Hawley also loves mentoring and oversees and teaches a team of six truly amazing high schoolers and undergraduates about the intersection of data science, neuroscience, and chemical engineering. Outside of work, she is either reading her way across the world (a book written by an author from every country) or teaching my cat new tricks (she just learned to high five).
