Kaitlin Goldstein

from the Boston Globe June 24, 2014 obituary:

Kaitlin R. Goldstein was an academic standout. Studying architecture and engineering, she earned a bachelor’s degree from Brown University and a master’s from the University of Texas at Austin before pursuing a doctorate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she was part of a team that twice won a White House competition on energy efficiency research.

“It’s fair to say that she knew more about practical energy efficiency programs nationally than anyone else in our group,” said one of her professors, Les Norford, associate head of MIT’s architecture department.

But Ms. Goldstein was never one to revel in her success. “Helping others motivated her more than academic fame,” Norford said. The caption under the photo said: Ms. Goldstein, a 28-year-old native of Providence, was found dead in northern India Saturday.
