Cate is a senior staff writer for the science and research section covering the Schools of Medicine, Public Health and Engineering beat. She is a first year who is pre-med and planning to concentrate in Biology, yet she simultaneously maintains a love for the humanities. She is from Mill Valley (near San Francisco), CA, so the experience of living through real seasons is completely new to her, but she is quickly adapting to the cold. She can often be found in search of beautiful study spaces throughout Providence.
