Hello! My name is Carolina (but you can also call me Caro!) and I am an undergraduate at Princeton University majoring in Operations Research and Financial Engineering and double-minoring in Finance and Sustainable Energy. I was born in the USA from Italian parents, but moved back to Italy when I was 1 year old. In Italy, I attended an accelerated program within a STEM-focused high school and participated in Math competitions, played volleyball, and tutored recently migrated citizens—adults and teenagers—in Italian and mathematics. Here at Princeton, I am VP of the Princeton University Energy Association: we foster connections between energy experts and students through our yearly fall conference, campus events, and networking opportunities. Outside of learning anything remotely related to renewable energy and electricity markets, I enjoy making coffee, going on walks, and listening to lots of music.
