University of Colorado Boulder, Chemistry & Biochemistry
Fellowship Sponsor: American Chemical Society
Fellowship Site: PBS NewsHour
Last summer, I completed my PhD in Chemistry as a NSF fellow at the University of Colorado Boulder. In graduate school I used ultrafast lasers to study the heck out of a biomimetic nanoparticle-enzyme system that can turn sunlight into fuel. As a senior editor for the graduate student-run blog Science Buffs, I got hooked on sharing the excitement and passion researchers have for science with a broad audience. I also acted as artistic director for the first annual ComSciCon Rocky Mountain West, which I absolutely loved. I am now pursuing a career as a science writer while I continue as an editor at Science Buffs, write for Chembites, and co-lead 500 Women Scientists Missoula. This summer, I am delighted to join the PBS NewsHour team!
