Research Description

Campus Research Day

My physical organic chemistry research was supervised by Dr. Mitch Menzmer who studies the formation of carbocation intermediates in acid-catalyzed reactions of alkylated and non-alkylated small ring alcohols. The goal of my work was to compile data and develop methods to search for relationships between the initial structures of molecules analyzed and the wavelengths of maximum absorbance for features observed within a given spectrum. In addition, my advisor from the School of Visual Art and Design, Associate Professor Marc Boyson, contributed to this process by providing insights about the way information could be presented to audiences outside my discipline.
