Why I like Chemistry

Chemistry is both practical and full of wonder.

Why I chose the Chemistry and Biochemistry Program at UW-Milwaukee

I like the research being done and it was conveniently located.

Favorite things to do in Milwaukee

There are tons of local run/walks and races all year long. I love sledding in winter and going to the zoo.

Research Goals

I hope to use optical fibers and fluorescence to probe cells.
