Welcome. You have reached Rachel's E115 webpage.

My name is Rachel Witner. I am a sophomore studying biological engineering. This past year, I was not sure what I wanted to study, so I took a variety of classes to see what interested me most. I have since decided bioprocessing engineering is what I want to pursue so that I can hopefully do research in the field of cellular agriculture.


This summer I am participating in the Summer Institute in Biostatistics. We get to learn statistical methods of analyzing data from clinical trials. I am also an intern with the SOUL Garden. I get to lead programs, collaborate with other student volunteers, and lead workdays at the garden. In the fall, I will be a tutor through the University Tutorial Center. In my free time I enjoy running, watching documentaries, cooking, and sometimes just existing


I have only had 2 jobs, and I strongly disliked both. I worked at Harris Teeter as a cashier and as a server at a local restaurant. My dream job would be to be a professor who is also doing research.
