Julia Odden, Graduate Fellow

Graduate Fellowship, 2022

Julia Odden, from Scottsdale, Arizona, will receive her Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science from Northwestern in 2022. For the last two summers she has been a Command and Control Systems Engineering Intern at NASA, working at the Kennedy Space Center. At NASA, Julia quickly made significant contributions to teams working on computer networks. She took this experience back to Northwestern where she served as an undergraduate teaching assistant in computer science courses and developed a keen interest in cybersecurity. She served as captain of the university’s competitive hacking team, and even started a blog about digital forensics for laypeople. She will pursue a Master’s in Computer Science at Northwestern, with a goal of using digital forensics to solve real-world problems.
