My name is Katherine Nelms, and I am a Junior chemistry student; I plan on going on to earn a graduate degree in chemical engineering after graduating from CSULA and then pursuing a career in materials science and engineering. By doing so, I hope to learn more about how different materials work at the molecular level, as well as their applications. In the meantime, I enjoy bullet journaling, baking, and reading murder mysteries and historical fiction.
My name is Brandon, and I am a senior Biochemistry undergraduate minoring in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. I am fascinated by the medical applications of chemistry, which is why I hope to continue to an MD–PhD dual–degree program and eventually professions in research. In this research lab, I enjoy working on two projects, focusing on drug delivery and singlet oxygen generation. Both of these projects investigate interesting medical applications of MOFs, and I look forward to continuing my research this year.
My name is Shirell Klein and I am a junior at CSULA majoring in Chemistry and minoring in Studio Art. After I complete my B.S., I plan on earning a graduate degree in synthetic chemistry. I am currently working on the drug delivery project in Dr. Liu's lab using MOF's as nano carriers for cancer medication.
My name is Sergio and I am a senior chemistry student at Cal State LA. I joined Dr. Liu's research group this past summer and will be working on the Solar Cell project this academic year. My next academic goal would be to go into a graduate program and participating in Dr. Liu's lab can help me achieve that.
