Sarah graduated from Caltech with a MS in chemistry. She received a BS in chemistry with honors and a minor in statistics at Penn State, where she wrote a thesis on her research regarding nanoparticle synthesis and assembly in Professor Raymond Schaak's lab. While at Caltech, she worked with the See group on developing new electrolyte systems compatible with inexpensive next-generation battery electrodes beyond lithium. She studied the electrode-electrolyte interface to tailor reactivity and develop structure-property relationships. Understanding these charge transfer processes helps enable design of less expensive and more efficient devices.
