Julia is so excited and sad that this is her final semester of doing research. She misses the fun of doing summer research with the GRAB lab but enjoys continuing her research during the school year as well! She has loved seeing the progress of the Quartz Crystal Microbalance project since she started and hopes to make some final strides before the semester ends. Julia recently has continued incorporating DNA aptamers into her mineralization experiments and analyzing the data. She is looking forward to making more memories in the lab and with the GRAB lab, especially when they take over Indianapolis for the ACS conference!
Julia has also been busy on campus as a member of the Student Government Association (SGA). Emmanuel College is going through a regular (but major) accreditation process with the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) and Julia is doing a superb job of representing Emmanuel students in this important process.
