I am a graduate student in Chemistry at the University of Michigan where I make materials to help carbon-based solar cells last longer. I have always loved chemistry because I can see, smell, and feel the materials I make (with appropriate PPE, of course). I hope to use my storytelling to engage everyday people with science.
