Corinne grew up in a small, rural town in Maine and left it for the "big" city of Boston to go to college. She earned her undergraduate degree in chemical engineering with a focus in biology from MIT. While at MIT, Corinne received several fellowships to do research abroad, including in Singapore and Israel. Currently, Corinne is pursuing a master's degree at MIT in the Systems Engineering department through the Technology and Policy Program. Her research is supported by USAID and involves studying health technologies and interventions in the developing world.
While an undergraduate at MIT, Corinne helped to found a tutoring organization to work with underprivileged Boston students. Through this, she tutored, mentored, and designed curriculum in high school math, reading, and writing. She also counseled students in applying to college and jobs. Additionally, Corinne was a chemistry tutor at MIT, and has enjoyed helping high school students decode and master chemistry exams in the past.
Outside of schoolwork, Corinne loves baking, reading for pleasure, and hiking.
