Marissa is excited to be back in Boston working on her research with gold nanoparticles. Now that the stressful spring semester has concluded, she can now place her full attention on her research. She has started work in developing new methods to characterize her nanoparticles, particularly in agarose gel electrophoresis to differentiate charges. She also aims to make progress on mineralization with nanoparticles, along with other experiments. Outside of research, she plans to traverse the Boston area and take advantage of the relatively cooler days before it heats up in July. This will be her last summer living in Boston so she wants to make the most of the time she has left.
