Why I like Chemistry

Being a core science, Chemistry satiates my queries raised in my mind. I find Chemistry in all of my daily activities.

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

Imminent research faculties, good opportunities of research that I looked for and great place to learn the techniques.

Favorite things to do in Milwaukee

Biking on trails, soccer, summer picnics and festivals
