A science enthusiast, Chloe is currently taking classes for Advanced Chemistry and Honors Biology at school. She has taken Honors Chemistry, AP Biology, and AP Computer Science outside of school, receiving As in all classes. She is exceptionally interested in the field of chemistry and how it is innately interdisciplinary in the applications of that field.
What challenges did she face?
- Chloe is interested to pursue either a general chemistry, biochemistry, or a chemical engineering major. However, she has not explored much about each field to make the final decision.
An Assistant Professor in Biomedical Engineering at Brown University. She is also secretary of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society – Providence Section, Editorial Board Member of Science Progress (Sage Publishing) and peer review panelist for the American Heart Association Bioengineering-Basic Science (BSc3) group.
How did our program help her?
- Chloe needed mentoring to critically organize and discuss a large amount of information
- She also needed help to formulate her point of view and make critical discussion/conclusions over the selected topic rather than just summarizing the existing literature.
