Why did you choose graduate school at IUPUI?
I fell in love with Indianapolis when I visited and wanted a medium sized program. After meeting with the Chemistry Department faculty, I knew this was the right program for me.
What has been your favorite academic accomplishment since you’ve been here?
I think my favorite accomplishments have been giving an oral presentation on my different research projects at the conferences I have attended so far. As well as my involvement in the local section of the American Chemical Society, I have met so many great people from the area through events there.
What do you enjoy most about life in Indianapolis?
I love exploring Indianapolis on the weekends with my fiancé, we love trying new restaurants and going to different neighborhoods.
Please provide some details about your work/research as a graduate student and/or any activities you are involved in.
My research involves looking into new ways to assess common medications used in practice. I also am very involved in the local section of the American Chemical Society and I have helped organize many outreach events in the local area, specifically in underserved areas encouraging STEM learning to our local children.
