About

I’m Emily.  I’m a 5th year PhD candidate in chemistry who is interested in energy and the environment, science communication, and how these subjects play a role in the policy world. My current research focuses on investigating the mechanism of Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, a method for making synthetic fuels, on the atomic scale. My masters research, which I did at Northeastern University, examined fuel cell catalysts during operation. I enjoy traveling, hiking, and homesteading, and I’m slowly blogging about my experiences.
