I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Missouri State University in 2015. As a member of the Inorganic Path in the UW-Madison Department of Chemistry, I worked in Prof. Danny Fredrickson’s group studying how electronics and atomic size lead to interesting and complicated structural chemistry in intermetallic compounds. After graduate school, I will be moving to Princeton, NJ to begin a postdoc with Professor Bob Cava at Princeton University. In addition to research, I have written and illustrated a series of comics teaching solid state chemistry concepts to a general audience.
