Sarah graduated from UNH last May with her B.S. in Environmental Engineering but decided to stay to pursue her M.S. in the same subject. During her time at UNH, Sarah has been involved in the STEMbassadors program, was president of Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honors society, and participated in several university-sponsored research projects.
In 2017, Sarah was selected to receive UNH’s Governor Wesley Powell Award for her public service efforts and in 2018 she was chosen as the American Society of Civil Engineers Top New Face of Civil Engineering, a national recognition.
Currently, Sarah’s research involves engaging the public in water quality monitoring at their home taps in an effort to better protect public health, and she will be traveling to North Carolina to present her findings at the Citizen Science Association’s national conference.
