Hannah Gillespie graduated in May 2020 from the University of Notre Dame with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and a minor in theology. She began full-time in Seattle, WA with The Boeing Company as a member of the Engineering Career Foundation Program (ECFP), a two-year rotation program for early-career engineers. Gillespie interned with Boeing for two summers before graduation, once with Boeing Research & Technology in Charleston, SC to automate the composite repair process and once on the Flutter Team in Boeing Commercial Aircraft product development in the Puget Sound. During her time at Notre Dame, Gillespie worked with Professor Juliano to prepare background-oriented schlieren (BOS) technique for implementation in the Large Mach 6 Quiet Tunnel. She was the team captain for Notre Dame’s Design, Build, Fly (DBF) student team, which fabricates a remote-controlled student-designed aircraft and flies it in an annual competition. At Boeing, she is the co-lead for the Boeing / ND DBF design team mentorship program. Gillespie enjoys backpacking the Olympic Peninsula and exploring the Seattle ice cream scene in her free time.
