Hello everyone! My name is Catlin Schalk. I am a 3rd year PhD student in the chemistry department. I am originally from Michigan, but I lived in Shanghai, China from 2006-2011 where I attended an international school. During those years my family and I also had the amazing opportunity to travel to many different countries in southeast Asia and in Europe. I love baking and yoga. Ask me about my pet rabbit - I have tons of pictures! I also enjoy traveling to nearby cities to see my favorite bands play live. You can find me on campus at the Compton Family Ice Arena during hockey season cheering on our Irish! Welcome to Notre Dame, I am so excited to meet you in the fall!
