I am gay and I am a PhD candidate in inorganic chemistry. //

I am a mechanistic chemist investigating the complete mechanism of the nucleation and growth of metal nanoparticles. I never imagined combining my two major identities into one, but being a gay scientist and owning that identity has greatly improved my life. I am a scientist, a runner, a swimmer, a yogi, a foodie, and a complete sucker for a happy-hour margarita.
