Honors College 2020 Grad David Catherall
H.B.S., Chemical Engineering


After graduation, David will begin working towards a PhD in materials science at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech).

" Caltech was one of my top choices, and to be honest I didn't think it would happen. I have no doubt the educational experience and research opportunities I had at OSU, as well as the thesis I wrote as part of the Honors College, had a big impact on my chances of attending such a world-class university. After finishing my formal education there, I plan on working in research at NASA, a national lab, or a university."

Thesis: A Fabrication Process and Analysis of ZnO-ZnS-Sb2S3 Thin Film Solar Cells
