Morgan graduated with her Honors BS in Chemical Engineering from Oregon State University; as an undergraduate research assistant she worked on collecting and standardizing experimental combustion data for validating and improving chemical kinetic models.
She is now pursuing her MS in Mechanical Engineering working on using machine learning methods to predict fuel properties.
