Biography

2018-2020           Internship, Idaho National Laboratory
2017-Present      Graduate Student, Florida State University
2016                     Internship, Savannah River National Laboratory
2013-2016           B.S., Chemistry, Augusta University

Research

My interests lie in the redox and electrochemical behavior of f-block elements, with an emphasis on lanthanide-actinide separations and extractions used in nuclear fuel cycle applications. These interests have led to expanding the scope of my research to include understanding how ionizing-radiation fields affect the redox chemistry of actinides in waste streams and reprocessing solvent systems, in particular the late actinides.
