Why I like Chemistry:
I enjoy chemistry because it is challenging and always evolving. I hope to continue honing my chemical skills in order to solve problems facing our environment.
Why I chose the Chemistry and Biochemistry Program at UW-Milwaukee:
I chose UW-Milwaukee because I wanted to attend graduate school in Wisconsin and Milwaukee felt like a much better fit for me than Madison.
Favorite things to do in Milwaukee:
I enjoy walking along the lakefront on Lincoln Memorial Drive as well as trying out new restaurants on the East Side and Downtown.
My current research goal is to investigate the use of ionic liquids as a thermal fluid, potentially for applications in solar energy and/or liquefaction of coal.
