Margarethe Hauschildt


Margarethe Hauschildt, from Dover, New Hampshire is an exercise science major and member of the University Honors Program and Honors in Major Program. She will graduate in September 2017 after completing an internship over the summer. Margarethe began researching under her mentor, Dr. Cook, in the summer of 2015, and decided she wanted to delve into a project of her own. She received a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) in 2016 and through that project learned more about the “behind-the-scenes” work of research: creating a hypothesis, applying for a grant, gathering participants, and analyzing results. She feels her research on the effectiveness of foam rolling is very relevant for anyone experiencing muscle soreness. Margarethe says that writing about her research for Inquiry’s general audience was challenging but rewarding and, along with her research and Honors Program experience, benefitted her plans for life after UNH. In the fall of 2017 Margarethe will head to Columbia University in New York City, where she will work toward a doctorate in physical therapy.
