Biography
I graduated from Gardner-Webb University, North Carolina, US with a Bachelors of Science in Chemistry. As an undergraduate, my research focus concentrated on studying environmental chemistry, particularly with concerns on water quality. In 2015, I had the opportunity to participate in a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida, US researching photo-degradation trends of petroleum.

Outside of environmental chemistry, I am interested in understanding the influences on decision-making processes and the thoughts and feelings of people living in relation to the environment around them.
