I graduated from Lake Forest College in 2018 with a B.A. in Chemistry. While there, I conducted research in the exploratory synthesis of novel metal thiophosphate materials using ionic liquids. Now at Iowa, I am working on synthesizing novel metal-organic frameworks for gas storage applications and characterizing their physical properties using atomic force microscopy as part of a joint effort with Professor Len MacGillivray's group. My hobbies include traveling, hiking, working out, and watching football.
