Chemical Engineering, ’21
Hey, welcome to my page!
I’m Miranda, a sophomore studying Chemical Engineering with an emphasis in Sustainable Energy. Look for me around campus on my way to teach experiments for Science Outreach, at an event for the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, computing molecular energies in the E-Quad for undergraduate research, or leaving Leavey Library after a late night study session. Ask me about any of my three different homes (Seattle, Denver, San Diego), and I’ll tell you how you can still drink coffee, go snowboarding, or hit the beach when you’re a USC student.
Follow along with me here or on Instagram to learn more about my #ViterbiLife, and fight on!

My Major: Chemical Engineering
How did I pick my major?
I chose my major by looking at which subjects and career fields I was interested in. Science and math led me to engineering, and the application of those subjects to fields such as energy or cosmetic chemistry led me to chemical engineering.

My Netflix Obsessions
I fast-forward to the segments with Dwight. If you’re interested, try Season 5 Episode 14.
When I’m missing my siblings, I’ll turn on this show to laugh at the antics of the three siblings: Louise, Tina, and Gene.
Favorite USC Tradition
My favorite USC tradition is kicking the pole for good luck on the way to the Coliseum to watch Trojan football! When I toured USC for the very first time my tour guide did it, and the tradition stuck with me.
