Grace is currently studying the properties of hydroxide-based nanomaterials (HDNs) and using data science tools to understand and predict their efficiency in dye degradation.
If you think this project sounds interesting and would like to work on a similar MQP, then contact Prof. Grimm to join now!
What brought you to WPI?
I came to WPI from Seattle, WA. WPI was appealing to me because of its small size and project-based learning model. These aspects have allowed me to form meaningful relationships with my classmates and professors, and to get hands-on experience with the work I hope to do post-graduation.
What are your research interests?
I am interested in physical and inorganic chemistry as well as the intersection between chemistry, mathematics, and computation. At WPI, I am pursuing a double major in chemistry and mathematics, which will give me an excellent background to work in this area.
What will you be doing immediately following your time at WPI?
I hope to begin my career in the chemical industry after graduation.
What are your long term professional goals?
I will pursue a career that lets me work on interesting chemical problems with relevance to the modern world; I also hope to find a space where I can apply my mathematical skills in data analysis and computational modeling.
