Jacqueline (Jacki) Rohde is a graduate student in the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University. She is the recipient of a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship (NSF-GRF) for her work in understanding engineering students’ non-traditional career pathways. Jacki’s research interests in engineering education include the development of student identity and attitudes, with a specific focus on the pre-professional identities of engineering undergraduates planning to join fields outside of industry, such as medicine, law, and academia. Jacki earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Bioengineering from Clemson University in 2017. She was a National Scholar as part of Clemson University’s most prestigious merit-based scholarship. She is also a founding member of the university’s chapter of Grand Challenge Scholars, a program sponsored by the National Academy of Engineering.
