Sam Miller and Fionna Samuels are now PhD candidates. To pass orals, Sam presented her research on nano-confined water and glucose mixtures in AOT reverse micelles. She studies these systems primarily with NMR techniques. Fionna presented her research on cryoprotectants interacting with plant cells. Congrats!
Sam Miller passed her candidacy exam today and is now officially a doctoral candidate! Congratulations on a stellar presentation! She will continue her work in understanding the fundamental nature of nano-confined water using NMR to investigate reverse micelles.
