This past week I got the chance to present at my first scientific conference! The American Physical Society’s March Meeting was held in New Orleans this year and hosted a variety of seminars, courses, and demonstrations.
My talk titled “Exploration of Solvent Effects On Morphology of Polyaniline & Other Polymer Films Deposited Through RIR-MAPLE” focused on the first study I completed while doing my graduate studies at Duke.
I also had the chance to participate in a short course led by Dr. Rodney Priestley from Princeton. Focused on colloid chemistry, the course introduced me to a completely new field with very interesting applications in materials.
In the blur of the past week I forgot to take many pictures, so here is one of the bayou-fresh oysters I got to enjoy! I had a ton of fun and hope to find myself at the next March Meeting next year!
