I joined Dr. Phillips research group when I was only a sophomore and have learned so much since then. It is amazing being able to participate in research so early in my chemistry career, a rare opportunity for undergraduate students. I have presented my project at Bucknell University, University of North Carolina-Asheville, and CERCA here at UWEC. Undergraduate research has been a motivation for me to continue my chemistry studies as a graduate student.
