Maija BenitzMaija Benitz

I graduated from Colorado College in 2008 with a BA in Physics and a minor in Math. The following year I served as the paraprof for the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at CC.

I earned a masters in mechanical engineering at UMass Amherst in 2012 which focussed on materials

My dissertation research studied the hydrodynamics of floating platforms for offshore wind turbines using computational fluid dynamics. I am so excited to be back at CC for the block!

Melody MaxsonMelody Maxson

A third year doctoral candidate at Case Western Reserve University working for Dr. Kash's group, Melody studies the characteristics and growth processes of a class of semiconductors called the heterovalent ternary nitrides.

She enjoys a varied exercise routine, painting, reading steampunk romance novels, and saying "hi" to every dog she meets. Her cat, Molly, is gracious enough to let her sleep in Molly's apartment, provided she continues to pay rent.
