Evaline Tsai

Evaline Tsai is a junior at Princeton University studying chemical and biological engineering and pursuing a certificate in environmental studies. Interested in science from a young age, she conducted scientific research throughout high school, winning Intel Science Talent Search Semifinalist, Siemens Competition Semifinalist, and numerous awards at the Synopsys Silicon Valley Science and Technology Championship. Naturally, Evaline has continued doing research in college. During the summer after her freshman year, she worked on sustainable concrete as an intern for Professor George Scherer in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department through the Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI). The following summer, she headed over to the Institute of Materials in Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Germany as a REACH intern for Professor Alfred Ludwig, developing nanoporous thin film photoelectrodes for solar water splitting.

At Princeton, Evaline participates in a number of extracurricular activities. As a member of Engineers Without Borders (EWB) during her freshman year, she was one of twelve SEADS scholars who explored sustainable development through weekly seminars. She then joined EWB's Conference Committee during her sophomore year to plan Collective Motion, a conference that brought together students, faculty, and visitors to discuss the economics of development. Now, Evaline is a proud member of the Peru Project Team at Princeton. Outside of her scientific pursuits, she is a staff writer and assistant web manager of Nassau Weekly and an Undergraduate Associate of Princeton's Law and Public Affairs (LAPA). In her free time, she enjoys hanging out with friends, listening to music, reading, and pursuing her newfound interest in photography.
