Natalia Urbas '23

Nuclear engineer and STEM mentor

Our 2023 winner is Natalia Urbas, who provided this brief bio:

I am a senior studying Materials Science and Engineering at Cornell University. At Cornell, I am involved in Navy ROTC, cooperative housing and am working on a thesis in computational Materials Science. Next year, I will commission as an officer in the US Navy.  I will be working as an engineer at Naval Reactors, the department responsible for the research and regulation surrounding the Navy's nuclear energy program. I am passionate about inclusion for women of color in the sciences, and I hope to use my experience to support young girls interested in STEM. In my free time, I enjoy rock climbing, wrestling and cooking.

A full bio will be available soon.
