Learning to calculate and balance flow recycle ratios in chem-e may not be everyone’s idea of a perfect morning activity, but it works for me.
For Kayla, it’s personal—especially when it comes to chemical engineering. “Both my father and my uncle were diagnosed with MS,” she explains. “Their conditions focused my attention on neurological diseases and how I could help.” Kayla fell in love with “chem-e” and pharmaceutical R&D when she was in high school, and she started hunting for an ideal school in New England for her undergraduate study. “My mom and I fell in love with WPI when we visited. It’s such a beautiful campus, and we felt a level of welcome that we didn’t experience anywhere else. I was immediately hooked.”
