Look it's me!  Work and Research  

Hi! I'm Autumn. This blog is for my chemistry updates in school, work, and life.

I'm a fourth-year Chemistry major with an American Chemical Society concentration at The College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University.

I am part of the research program here, working on the use of functionalized dendrimers in catalysis. I work at Montana State University in Bozeman and the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University .

In addition to research, I work in the chemistry department at CSBSJU, helping with developing new labs and as a teaching assistant for intro chem, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and upper division integrated lab.

I have high hopes of getting my PhD in chemistry and am applying to schools this fall.

Chemistry is an extremely interesting, wonderful topic and I hope you find it as amazing as I do :)

………. Oops

Of course, this is the moment your PI walks in… or even worse, an unannounced safety officer.

Unfortunately I was TAing in this lab at the time too… And the professor I was TAing for IS my PI. So this was witnessed by all the students in the lab plus him. So scarring…
