Erin Bennett


Erin earned her undergraduate degree from Ursinus College, where she majored in Physics and Astronomy and minored in Spanish. Erin’s undergraduate career was very research intensive. One of her research topics involved the development of numerical simulations, which modeled the effects of arranging interacting “Rydberg” atoms in particular geometries. This research contributed to Erin’s discovery of parameters that could be particularly useful for controlling the energy exchange among these atoms.

After completing her undergraduate career, Erin immediately began her legal studies at Vermont Law School. During the summer of 2016, Erin clerked for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and this past summer, clerked for Hopping, Green & Sams, P.A. in Tallahassee, Florida. Her clerkships focused on energy and environmental law. Erin’s interest in energy law stems from her physics background, and she is very pleased to be afforded the opportunity to utilize her research skills in this very important area.
