Her senior thesis at Bates focused on developing a methodology to study bumblebee wing-leaf collisions. She also performed organic chemistry research at Colorado State University in the summer of 2019 to optimize reaction conditions for a novel ligand-coupling reaction.
In her free time, Natalie loves to spend time outdoors hiking, skiing, and backpacking. She is looking forward to exploring the Great Smoky Mountains during her time in Tennessee.
