ICYMI: Soaring Together with Mechanical Engineering PhD student Shira Morosohk

"I sort of did everything out of order," says Shira Morosohk of Lehigh's Class of 2018.

She's referring to how, as an undergraduate, she took sophomore classes as a first-year and junior classes as a senior, started her capstone early, and did a nontraditional co-op. "Lehigh was really accommodating, and if I hadn't gone here as an undergrad, I wouldn’t be doing any of this."

By this, she means getting her PhD in nuclear fusion control systems. Morosohk is in her fourth year in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics. She's currently doing research at the DIII-D National Fusion Facility in San Diego.
