Kate Shimamoto ’22 is chemistry major from Chicago, Illinois (if you listen closely you can hear a slight accent). She is a student athlete on the track and field team, and runs the 400m and 800m. When she is not at practice or in lab, Kate loves playing the piano, hiking, and watching random documentaries in her free time. She is also incredibly passionate about space and could talk about black holes, the multiverse, and quantum theory for hours. After college, Kate hopes to go into medical research. If you ever would like to hear a few fun facts, especially chemistry related ones, she would love to talk!
