SURO Home Applying Summer 2020 Caroline Sargent Undergraduate Institution: Wofford College SURO Research: Schaefer Laboratory, Computational Chemistry Summer 2019 Ariana Deegan Undergraduate Institution: University of Georgia SURO Research: Frossard Laboratory, Analytical Chemistry Giang (Jessie) Le Undergraduate Institution: St. Olaf College SURO Research: Amster Laboratory, Analytical Chemistry Eric Martinez Undergraduate Institution: Emory University SURO Research: Duncan Laboratory, Physical Chemistry Xena Mansoura Undergraduate Institution: University of Georgia SURO Research: Morrison Laboratory, Organic Chemistry Olivia Murtagh Undergraduate Institution: Mississippi State University SURO Research: Phillips Laboratory, Organic Chemistry Summer 2018 Sydney Giles Undergraduate Institution: West Virginia University, Morgantown, WV SURO Research: Duncan Laboratory, Physical Chemistry Sydney measured the spectrum of small nitrogen containing carbocations using infrared laser spectroscopy. She focused on methaniminium, an ion of a neutral species that has been found in the interstellar medium. Diana Graves Undergraduate Institution: University of North Georgia, Dahlonega, GA SURO Research: Popik Laboratory, Organic Chemistry Diana worked with Masha Sutton in Dr. Popik’s research group studying the organic synthesis of novel photo-reactive compounds. They worked on a synthesis path for caged compounds that will become fluorescent upon stimulation with light in order to measure the amount of drug released during stimulation. Jasmine Harris Undergraduate Institution: Valdosta State University, Valdosta, GA SURO Research: Frossard Laboratory, Analytical Chemistry Jasmine worked with fellow SURO student Marlyne to measure the surface tension of seawater samples using pendant drop tensiometry and run photochemistry experiments in a solar simulator. Kaitlin Luedecke Undergraduate Institution: University of Georgia, Athens, GA SURO Research: Robinson Laboratory, Inorganic Chemistry In Kaitlin’s research, she explored the synthesis, molecular structure, and equilibrium dynamics of the 1,3,2-diazaborole-derived carbene-BX3 complex (X=Br, I). Marlyne Serratos Undergraduate Institution: Georgia Gwinnett College, Lawrenceville, GA SURO Research: Frossard Laboratory, Analytical Chemistry Marlyne worked with fellow SURO student Jasmine to measure the surface tension of seawater samples using pendant drop tensiometry and run photochemistry experiments in a solar simulator. Rebekah Soliday Undergraduate Institution: James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA SURO Research: Douberly and Frossard Laboratories, Physical Chemistry Rebekah’s research focused on high level geometry and frequency calculations of n-propyl and i-propyl radicals and O2 William White Undergraduate Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA SURO Research: Douberly Laboratory, Physical Chemistry William’s research consisted of designing and optimizing a visible wavemeter.
