Hey! I’m a senior majoring in Biochemistry and Neurobiology with certificates in Health in the Humanities and Biocore. I joined the Wickens Group in May 2021 where I have been working on a project using electrochemistry and arenes to synthesize site-selective and versatile intermediates that can be functionalized by a bi-phenyl-bi-sulfide molecule called thianthrene to form small drug-like molecules to potentially be used in various clinical, pharmaceutical, and industrial methods! Being a part of research has changed the way I approach science and has made me fall in love with science all over again! Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about your research!
