Katherine Adamski, Graduate Fellowship

Graduate Fellowship, 2016

Katherine Adamski received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Northwestern in 2010 and returned to Northwestern last fall to begin the Masters of Science in Engineering Design Innovation program. In 2012, she was awarded a U.S.-India Educational Fulbright Foundation Grant to study musicians and mental health in India. While there, she also volunteered at a school of dalit (“untouchable”) children. Katherine currently works as an assistant design engineer at the Innovations Lab at the Feinberg School of Medicine (FSM). She is part of a team that designs prototypes and produces novel simulation devices for surgical training. Her experience with mental health, technology and helping people from diverse backgrounds has led to her desire to combine healthcare and technology with innovations in medicine. Her goal is to found a startup that utilizes technology to improve medical care at low cost.
