The Engineering Fellows of the College of Engineering and Applied Science is an honorary service organization. The Fellows are a select group of academically successful, service-oriented students of the College who actively seek to promote academic excellence in the College through peer academic support. Selection and service as a Fellow is one of the College's highest honors.

Several Fellows within ChBE are available to connect with students to discuss topics related to academic success and provide mentorship.

Fellows in ChBE


Nina Hooper"Hi, my name is Nina! I grew up in Bellingham, Washington, before moving to Boulder to pursue a degree in chemical engineering with a minor in physics. This is my third year at CU and my first year as a Fellow. I worked previously as a Teaching Assistant in the Chemical Engineering Department, which is where I first discovered my love for teaching. In addition to my work as a Fellow, I am a research assistant under Dr. Holewinski, and I work on campus sustainability policy with Student Government. I am passionate about the environment, and hope to pursue a research career developing sustainable technology. I also enjoy skiing, hiking, climbing, and anything else that involves being outdoors."


Julia Bendorf"Hello, my name is Julia! I’m a Colorado native and currently a pre-medical student pursuing a degree in chemical and biological engineering with a certificate in neuroscience and minor in biomedical engineering. I transferred to CU last year and am currently enjoying my second year here and my first year as a fellow. I love the atmosphere of our ChemE department and the fellows seemed like the perfect opportunity to get involved in it! I am also researching biosensors with Charles Wyatt Shields and volunteering at Children’s Hospital. I am very interested in medicine and hope to pursue a career as a researching physician (hopefully in pediatrics because kids are awesome)! In my free time you might find me spending time with my cat, Curie, baking, running, or painting."


Jacob Moxley"Hello all I am Jacob and one of the Engineering fellows at CU. I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia and grew up there. I briefly attended the University of Alabama and then joined the Marine Corps. During my time in the Marines I had the opportunity to do some engineering related work which helped keep up my lifelong passion for engineering and math. I came to CU in the fall of 2018 and currently am double majoring in chemical engineering and applied mathematics with a computer science minor. I have a passion for applied science problems and the computing tools behind them. In my free time I enjoy long distance running, cycling, and backcountry skiing and snowshoeing."


Sophia Ulmer"Hi, my name is Sophia. I grew up in Colorado and am a senior studying chemical and biological engineering with a minor in biomedical engineering.This is my second year as an Engineering Fellow. I was previously a learning assistant for Phage Biology and am currently a course assistant for Fluid Mechanics. Outside of my work as a Fellow, I am also a research assistant for Dr. Whitehead where I do research on monoclonal antibodies. I am passionate about biopharmaceuticals and hope to pursue a career developing them. In my free time, I love snowboarding, hiking, cooking my favorite traditional Mexican dishes, and knitting."
