I am a 4th year PhD candidate in the Savage Lab. I graduated from the University of Dayton in 2011 with a B.Ch.E in Chemical Engineering. Currently, I am studying the fast liquefaction of microalgae to produce bio-oil. I enjoy salsa dancing, sampling new restaurants, and reading when I’m not working on my research.
I am a 4th year PhD candidate in the Savage Lab. I earned my undergraduate degree in chemical engineering from Michigan Technological University. My current research is on chemical by-products from catalytic hydrothermal reactions of microalgae. I enjoy movies, traveling, shopping, and dancing.
