Jaelynne King. After discussing my graduate applications with my chemical engineering lab professor, he informed me to choose a school that aligned with my research interest in catalysis. Steven S. Chuangwhose research focus is energy generation and storage.
My undergraduate research focused on the catalytic conversion of CO 2 and biomass to value-added chemicals and fuels. The project fostered an interest in the fundamental mechanisms of catalysis and the importance of chemical structure on product selectivity.
Thus, I wanted a program that would continue to foster my interests in catalysis. What experience here at The University of Akron has contributed the most to your growth?
A variety of experiences have contributed to my growth professionally and personally as a graduate student at The University of Akron. I was able to engage in leadership opportunities and perform community outreach.
Through this organization, I was able to engage with professors and my fellow peers, expanding my leadership and communication skills. The College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering hosts community outreach through a science education night at local middle schools.
As a volunteer, I was able to educate students about the harmful effects of UV rays, while helping the students make bracelets with be that change color under UV exposure. Watching the students take an interest in science was a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
My advisor, Dr. Chuanghas further cultivated my research skills through stimulating discussions that steer my thought process in directions that I may not have focused on ly.
He reassures my passion in my research, encourages original thought and acts as a champion for my success. Additionally, Dr. Through her, I recognized the position I have within the minority community as a role model for students who wish to pursue fields in science and engineering. In my spare time, I play tennis with friends at the UA tennis courts, and I regularly attend tennis drills at the Towpath Tennis Center. My postgraduation interests include a position at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, or a postdoctoral program to further my education.
