Current courses at UWL

CHM 103-General Chemistry I


I began taking college courses at the age of 26, while working full time.  After many semesters of one or two courses, I graduated with an Associate in Arts degree in Liberal Arts from Minneapolis Community and Technical College in 2009.

In 2016, I quit working to attend college full time and obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry with a Biochemistry focus from the University of Wisconsin River Falls, graduating in 2017.

After graduation, I attended graduate school at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. I worked in the lab of Prof. Chunyu Wang and was co-advised by Prof. Robert J. Linhardt. I was awarded my Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Biophysics in 2022.
