What is your research about?

Energy and Catalysis research. My research project will focus on the development of electron driven chemistry and its application to the current centralized, and large-scale infrastructure of the chemical industry.

Do you live on- or off-campus?

I currently live in Overlook at Notre Dame which is technically off campus. However, I will be moving a bit further away from campus in May.

To which Notre Dame clubs and/or research organizations do you belong?
  • Association for Women in Science (AWIS)
    • STEMentorship through AWIS: a combination of graduate and undergraduate students in which the undergraduates are mentored by the graduate students they are paired with.
  • Clare Booth Luce Fellows: graduate, undergraduate, and faculty members who have received the Clare Boothe Luce Fellowship
  • Society of Schmitt Fellows (SSF)
  • Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Graduate Student Organization (CBEGSO)
    • CBE 2019 Symposium Committee
  • Graduate Society of Women Engineers (GradSWE)
  • Office of Grants & Fellowships; position: Fellowship Coordinator
After you graduate, what are your career aspirations?

I intend to pursue a research and development career in the energy industry after receiving my Ph.D. However, I can see myself wanting to return to academia after several years in industry to bring industry work and application to the classroom and research labs.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Reading, traveling, intramural sports with the department, working out, drawing, and hanging out with friends
