  • Biography
    I am a terribly indecisive junior undergrad and I go to a small liberal arts college with no experience with nanotechnology. I have piddled around in various majors, but decided to major in chemistry. My guiding philosophy is that I am intelligent enough to make a meaningful contribution to the world, and the best way to do that is via the sciences. Since I have had little clue what I wanted to do with my life, I chose the "central" science. I have had two solid semesters of organic, one semester of analytical, a 400 level course called instrumental analysis, and i am preparing to study in Dublin and take a P-chem seminar and a nano introductory course. By the time i graduate in 2012, I will have serious P-chem done, with flexibility to take a little bio and or more physics. Relevant research would be difficult to begin at my school because there is almost no guidance, and my grasp of the subject and intelligence is wanting. This past summer I developed an interest in nanosciences and waded through a difficult materials chemistry book. I liked it, but I feel like I never really understood the more difficult concepts.
