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 recently was accepted into 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, 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 :)

New Blog!

Hey guys,

For a while I’ve been toying with the idea of moving this blog in a more text-oriented direction, where I explain more of what I do than a picture board. I love posting every little picture from the lab, though, so I decided to just make a new blog on Wordpress!

Hood32 Wordpress

This blog will still be just as active as it normally is, but if you have a wordpress I’d love if you checked out the other one too. They’re similar but different, so there’s no drawback from following both :) I’m really looking for feedback on the new one, so if anything sucks feel free to let me know here or anywhere else you can find me.

Re-sharing this for you guys during my break. Hopefully I’ll have a fancy new surprise for you when school starts again! ;)
