Katie Mowat
BSE-PI Manager, ENGR-PhD
Advisor: Logan Perry

I am an engineer who loves to work with people, learn about new ideas and developments in my field, and spend quality time with friends and family. My goal is to inspire the next generation of engineers to be curious, excited, and passionate about engineering and life. My research is on the transfer of learning of theoretical class work to practical application in a student run engineering learning and engineering center: BSE-PI. In my free time I enjoy playing flag football, crocheting, cooking, and gardening.
