She enjoys deep dives into cinematography and loves to curate Spotify playlists. Sein is excited for her senior thesis project, where she will use bioprinted cell scaffolds to create artificial ligaments.
Anne-Amélie is a junior majoring in Chemical Engineering with a certificate in Energy Studies. She has conducted research in artificial photosynthesis at the Brudvig Lab and is now joining a membrane separations group to work at the water-energy nexus. This summer, Anne-Amélie interned at a clean-tech start-up, where she developed gas separation membranes for carbon capture. She hopes to pursue a career at the intersection between engineering for sustainability and global energy policymaking. She is Vice President of Yale European Horizons and helps organize the Yale Clean Energy Conference. Anne-Amélie loves to play the harp and learn new languages, Spanish being her next! She is excited to continue developing Yale's Solar Project this year, where the team is building the first solar charging station on campus.
Maria is a senior studying Applied Physics alongside the Energy Studies certificate. Beyond involvement in SWE, she spends lot of time at STM (Yale's Catholic Center), plays tennis on the club team, and does research in an applied physics lab. In lab, she works with a class of superconductors called cuprates, which in addition to being really cool (pun intended), have wide potential applications including fusion energy and power transmission. Maria wants to pursue a career that allows her to keep researching and mentoring, so after graduation she hopes to pursue a PhD in physics or engineering. She is a proud parent of many plants (some of which have been with her since freshman year!) and has tried just about every coffee shop in New Haven.
Corporate Relations & Careers
Anne is a senior majoring in mechanical engineering. Outside of SWE, she is involved with the Yale Undergraduate Aerospace Association as co-leader of the Rocket Team and sings with the Yale Glee Club and her acapella group, Whim ‘n Rhythm. She also enjoys travelling and road trips, finding the best smoothie spots, and has recently gotten into pickleball. In the future, Anne hopes to use her interests in engineering and design to work in product design and development. Recently, she had the opportunity to intern as a Design Engineer with Pratt & Whitney to support the compression systems section of military and commercial jet engines!
Professional Development Co-Chair
Maria is a junior majoring in Chemical Engineering. She is a member of the Kim Lab where she works on functionalizing single atom catalysts on ceramic membranes for waste water applications. She also co-founded Yale's premier ChemE Car team under AIChE. In the future, Maria sees herself working in the energy industry, specifically pursuing green technology which she hopes can contribute to the ongoing energy scarcity in her home country of Kenya. On the weekends, Maria enjoys long runs through the canals near Yale and going out for coffee. This year, she is excited to improve on the ChemE car technology that the team developed- namely a more powerful aluminum-air battery and even more accurate iodine clock.
Professional Development Co-Chair
Nicole is a junior majoring in biomedical engineering. She spent the summer conducting research in advanced breast cancer, looking at targeted therapies in combination with immunotherapy and is excited to continue similar research at Yale. In the future she hoped to become a Ph.D. in the field of molecular bioengineering and cancer research. In her free time she enjoys reading, hanging out with friends and running (she is aiming for a marathon in 2024!). Nicole is excited for her junior year and diving into to more major specific classes.
Community & Social Impact
Community Development Co-Chair
Shahribonu is a rising junior majoring in chemical engineering and energy studies. She is the publication lead for Engineers without Borders and will conduct research conductivity in the Prefferle Lab. In the future, she hopes to contribute to growing research in green energy. She loves dancing and writing during her free time and is very excited to be involved with SWE for the upcoming academic year.
Community Development Co-Chair
Amanda is a sophomore majoring in biomedical engineering. She competes on the Yale Varsity Fencing Team, is Co-President of Yale Women's Athletic Council, and is a Harvest leader. This summer, she is conducting neurorehabilitation research in individuals with spinal cord injury at the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab in Chicago. She hopes to become a physician, biomedical engineer, or a combination of both in the future. In her free time, she enjoys going on long walks and runs outside, trying new food, and hanging out with friends. She is super excited to start research at the Yale School of Medicine and be a part of the wonderful SWE community this year!
Community Development Co-Chair
Karley is a junior in Berkeley College from Canton, Michigan. She is majoring in Biomedical Engineering with a certificate in Education Studies. Outside of classes, she is passionate about menstrual equity and is the president of YaleBleeds as well as the project chair for GREEN's Sustainable Menstrual Products project. She is also involved with Danceworks and is an Academic Strategies Program Mentor. Karley is still figuring out what she wants to do in the future, but tissue engineering excites her and she wants to do more work in women's health. When she has free time, she is working on decorating her postcard collection and taking new book recommendations. (Please send them her way!)
Victoria is a senior majoring in Mechanical Engineering (ABET). She is originally from Omaha, Nebraska. At Yale, she conducts soft robotics research in the Faboratory and is also involved in Y-IEEE. In the future, she hopes to work in engineering, potentially in medical device design, to find creative solutions to solve problems. In her free time, Victoria enjoys playing board games with friends, cooking, reading, ice skating, and stargazing. Victoria is passionate about the soft robotics research she does and is excited for her senior mechanical engineering project.
Operations & Publicity
Halyn is a three-time board member majoring in chemical engineering who plans on graduating in 2025. She dabbles in graphite and charcoal drawing and is a member of the Branford IM basketball team. She currently is working at NASA's Johnson Space Center as an aircraft operations and thermal systems engineering trainee. In the future, she wants to continue her work at NASA in the engineering directorate.
