Zeller-Resnick First Year Fellow 2017
Jackie is a graduate student in environmental science and engineering. She earned a BA degree in chemistry from Carleton College in 2017. She conducted research focused on aerosol chemistry at UC San Diego and the University of Iowa, and climate modeling at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado. She founded the Carleton College Energy Club and spearheaded a conservation project with occupancy sensors that significantly reduced the college's annual energy costs and carbon emissions. Her undergraduate senior thesis focused on photoelectrochemistry with applications in photovoltaics and photocatalyzed water splitting for hydrogen fuel. She helped install a solar panel array in India as part of her Carleton physics class. Witnessing poverty, poor energy access, and the health impacts of air pollution in Delhi motivated her studies. She plans to study materials and atmospheric chemistry with renewable energy and climate science applications at Caltech.
