Currently an undergraduate majoring in Chemistry and Physics, I joined Dr. Nyman's group on November 14, 2013. My research in inorganic chemistry focuses on aqueous synthesis of rare earth clusters. I also work with the CSMC in the ionics group in effort to fabricate thin films of garnet electrolyte materials by methods of spin coat deposition. I am ecstatic to be doing research in Nyman's group, and extremely thankful for the opportunity to be here. Research has been a major learning experience for me, and my first taste of professional science.
