Angela is currently a PhD candidate in Stanford's Environmental Engineering and Science Program (expected completion, Spring 2015). Angela completed her B.S. in Chemical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology prior to coming to Stanford for her M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Angela conducts research related to water, sanitation, and child health in developing countries. Angela has extensive experience in developing survey questionnaires and conducting structured observations at the household level as a part of research studies in Tanzania, Kenya, and Bangladesh. Angela also seeks to better understand how to most effectively educate in the engineering fields. She is interested in identifying effective teaching methods to provide students with the skills and expertise they need for the careers they are passionate about pursuing.

Angela is involved in Stanford's student chapter of American Society of Engineering Education and has served on the executive board for two years, including the role of President for the 2013-2014 academic year.
