Rebecca established methods to produce large, single crystal MOFs and to cap them with silane molecules for the future trapping of guest molecules related to therapeutic drug delivery.

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?

The opportunities for undergraduates to have a hands on learning experience, prioritizing lab courses over lectures. Also, I found the community incredibly supportive rather than competitive.

What are your research interests?

I am interested in research at the interface of inorganic, materials, and analytical  chemistry. Currently, I am exploring the synthesis and applications of single crystal MOFs.

What will you be doing immediately following your time at WPI?

After my time at WPI, I plan on attending a graduate school to further develop my skills.

What are your long term professional goals?

My long term professional goals include working within industry as a leader and acting as a mentor for others as many at WPI  and my internships have done for me.
