Hey! I’m a junior majoring in chemistry with certificates in physics and education & educational services. I joined the Martell Group in Feburary 2020 and have been working on the protein team since. My project looks at evolving enzymes to be able to degrade plastics (bioremediation-type work rooted in chemical biology, organic chemistry and biochemistry). Additionally, I’ve worked on subprojects that involve synthesising a mock-substrate for quantitive enzyme analysis. Feel free to reach out if you have questions about navigating undergraduate research!
