Cassidy Humphreys

A.B., Princeton, 2022

Cassidy grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, in a town called Gurnee. She says her town’s claim to fame is that they have a Six Flags! Although Cassidy loves going to school on the east coast, the midwest still holds a special place in her heart. At Princeton, Cassidy is a residential college advisor for Rockefeller college, and her dream is to become a chemist in the flavor or fragrance fields! For now, she’s really excited to be learning so many new things about the metallophotoredox¬†field, and can’t wait to get started on her own independent¬†work in that field!

Fun Facts
  • One of Cassidy's best friends is her cat bubbles, although she is the grumpiest cat that has ever lived.
  • Both of Cassidy's parents were born in Belize, so she's a first-generation student.
  • During quarantine, Cassidy got back into reading and read 50 books last year. Her goal for 2021 is 60!
  • In another life, Cassidy thinks she must have been an Olympic volleyball player because, although she's mediocre at best, nothing makes her happier than playing or watching it.
