Sarah is a recent Ph.D. graduate of the High Temperature Gasdynamics Lab in the Mechanical Engineering department at Stanford University. Her interests lie in the field of combustion and propulsion, spanning the overlap between mechanical and aerospace engineering.

As a Mitchell Scholar, Sarah studied Advanced Mechanical Engineering at Queen’s University Belfast.

Sarah’s undergraduate research involved improving the performance of biofuels in cold weather with a focus on the potential of butanol as a possible alternative fuel source. As an intern at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, she performed structural design analysis for external instrumentation mounts on aircraft, and she also interned at the Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, where she worked on systems integration engineering.

Sarah obtained her undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Alabama.
