The graduate student advocates help individual graduate students work through any issues that arise, help graduate students approach the Graduate Program Coordinator as needed, and serve as a liaison between graduate students, the Graduate Student Association, the Graduate Program Chair, and the Associate Head for Climate and Diversity.
I am a fourth year graduate student in the Keating Group where I study electric field directed particle assembly for tunable optical properties. Outside of research I enjoy group fitness, reading, crafting and being outdoors. I am honored to have the opportunity to be a Graduate Student Advocate for the Chemistry Department and I hope to help everyone feel comfortable and valued in our department! Please feel free to reach out to me whenever you may need someone to talk to!
I'm a fourth-year graduate student in the Noid lab where I study the effects of small molecules on protein folding via theoretical/computational methods. I am extremely excited to be serving as a Graduate Student Advocate for the Chemistry Department and I hope to be able to contribute positively to the department climate by providing an extra pair of ears to all who need them. I believe strong mental health and a good working environment are essential to succeed in graduate school and I hope I will be able to do my part to help!
