Jennifer Ciesielski, graduate student in Alison Frontier's lab who will be defending her Ph.D. thesis on June 25th, has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) International Research Fellowship.
The objective of the International Research Fellowship Program (IRFP) is to introduce scientists and engineers in the early stages of their careers to international collaborative research opportunities, thereby furthering their research capacity and global perspective and forging long-term relationships with scientists, technologists and engineers abroad. These awards are available in any field of science and engineering research and education supported by NSF.
Jennifer will be working at the ETH (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in Zurich, Switzerland for Professor Erick M. Carreira. Prof. Carreira's research is focused on synthetic organic chemistry, organometallics and asymmetric catalysis, and medicinal chemistry.
