Hi! I am a junior double majoring in Botany & Biochemistry. I joined the Fredrickson Group in January 2021. My current project aims to use computational tools like density functional theory to analyze and better understand how chemical pressure shapes intermetallic structures. In the past I have worked with tools like VASP, an electronic structure software, to perform orbital analysis of various crystal structures including HfAs in the Titanium Phosphate type. Please do feel free to reach out to me with any questions about getting into crystallography, computational chemistry, or research in general.
