Connecticut College New London, CT, USA
As a research assistant in Dr. Timo Ovaska's lab as apart of Connecticut College's SSRI program, over the course of 8 weeks I was primarily responsible for planning and overseeing the progress on work towards the total synthesis of Frondosin D, a compound produced in nature with anti-inflammatory and tumor suppressant properties. Accordingly, I would prepare and oversee reactions in addition to making minor repairs around the lab as necessary. Lastly, I also worked alongside fellow student researchers to prepare and deliver a presentation about our research during a campus colloquium talk.
