B.S. (Ch.E.); 2013 - WPI
Ashley obtained her BS degree in Chemical Engineering from WPI, and is pursuing her MS as part of WPI's 5-year BS/MS program.
After taking some graduate courses during her senior year, she continued with more coursework last semester and is
finishing up her course requirements this Spring. At the same time she is working to extend her senior year MQP project
to an MS Thesis. Ashley did her MQP as part of a group of four students who carried out an experimental study of heating
and cooling in a packed bed. Ashley is extending the experimental work and developing a CFD model of heat transfer in
packed beds to compare to the experimental results.
