If you are a chemistry education major, we can brainstorm and determine where your interests lie and develop a project based upon your interests. Given the resources available to chemists today, finding a research project that will be an enjoyable experience for both of us is my desire.
If you have an interest in a reaction type in organic chemistry, we can investigate new developments for that reaction and use that as a stepping stone to develop a capstone research project. You have the opportunity to use your creativity to design a capstone research project and we can work together to refine the project. Students can conduct research for credit as well as conduct research for their capstone project. Please note that the Chemistry Department has access to a chemistry search engine called SciFinder® that will allow you to research a topic extensively.
