Why I like chemistry
Not only is chemistry itself universally important, it also sits at a nice crossroad between the other scientific disciplines such as biology and physics. It also allows for discovery through critical thinking and a little risk taking, which is exciting.
Why I chose the program at UWM
I enjoyed my previous studies through the department and very much enjoyed my experiences with staff and faculty.
Favorite things to do in Milwaukee
Enjoying the parks, bike trails, lakefront, as well as the food, beer, music, festivals and sporting events.
Being able to utilize a variety of techniques to study metalloenzyme mechanisms.
