Carolyn Barrera CEE ‘20 is one of eight people selected to join Siemens Gamesa as an engineer specializing in wind engineering after graduation.

Siemens Gamesa is a leader in the renewable energy industry, working to provide the world's best offshore and onshore wind turbines and services.

Carolyn has been a member of Professor Barthelmie’s Wind Energy Lab for over 2 years, working on wind turbine blade leading edge erosion. Barrera has also taken both of Barthelmie’s wind courses; MAE4020 Wind Power and MAE4120 Community Wind Energy Research.

“I’ve learnt almost everything I know about wind energy from working with Professor Barthelmie at Cornell and I’m looking forward to my new career working internationally and further contributing to the success of this exciting renewable technology,” said Barrera.

Carolyn is continuing a proud tradition of collaboration between the Wind Energy Lab and the wind energy industry on complex inter-disciplinary engineering problems.
