Hilary Fabich is a Montana native, born and raised just over the hill in Livingston. After graduating from Park High School she moved to Bozeman to start her undergraduate degree in chemical engineering at Montana State University. During her undergraduate degree she used funding from USP and INBRE to support her research in the Magnetic Resonance (MR) Lab working with Joseph Seymour and Sarah Codd. This was her first introduction to MR technology. The final summer of her degree at MSU she was awarded funding through a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program to spend the summer working with David Weitz at Harvard University. After graduating from MSU, she spent six months as a researcher, again working with MR, at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. She knew she wanted to do more research so looked into PhD programs. She is currently working toward her PhD in chemical engineering as a Gates Cambridge Scholar at the University of Cambridge. Her current research is in developing an MR technique to study dynamic systems relevant to engineering and materials science. In addition to research, Hilary is a musician, having played in the MSU symphony orchestra during her undergraduate degree and has always been an outdoor enthusiast taking every opportunity to ski, climb, hike, or just sit on the grass in the sunshine.
