While still in high school, Julia created a large molecule—a diblock copolymer—with refractive properties that allowed her to engineer a nano “cloaking device,” rendering tiny particles invisible. Her research has applications for telecommunications, deep-sea sensors, medical diagnostics, defense, and optics.
As a first-year sabre fencer, Julia led the Wildcats in regular-season victories and competed in the NCAA championships.
