I earned a degree in chemical and biological engineering from the Colorado School of Mines. Being an engineer is in my blood; I am constantly coming up with possible solutions to everyday problems, inquiring about physical phenomena, spending hours each day reading and researching topics in the sciences, and actively seeking ways to challenge myself.
Between 2011 and Mid-2013 I worked as an undergraduate researcher in one of my school’s labs. I conducted research on the rheology of biopolymers and the effects various salts have on biopolymer viscosity throughout a range of applied shear rates. If you would like to explore my research on biopolymers further, please feel free to read “Altering the viscosity of cationically modified cellulose polymers by the addition of salt” (DOI: 10.1002/app.41616).
I currently work as a process design engineer.
