After the long December and January break, Kristy headed straight to the lab to get started on her next project. She started her Au NP mineralization project and is excited for the outcome, it was a shaky start but there are high hopes! She’s also excited for the upcoming ACS conference this year in New Orleans. New experiments, new data and same supporting GRAB Lab! A lot of mixed emotions for her final semester at Emmanuel but she’s ready to finish with a bang!
