I am a 5th year PhD candidate. I graduated from Iowa State University in 2010 with my B.S. in Chemical Engineering. I am originally from Iowa and enjoy dance, reading and creative design. I’m currently researching new catalysts for bio-oil upgrading and am co-advised by Professor L.T. Thompson.

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.
