Jess joined this amazing department in March 2010 after graduating from Marist College with a B.S. in Chemistry. She has dabbled in many areas of chemistry in various places including: peptide creation for cheese flavors at International Flavors and Fragrances (IFF) in New Jersey (Summer ’07), evaluating pollution in the Thames River in England (Summer ’07), analyzing CdSe thin film semi-conductors at UMASS Amherst (Summer ’08), and developing a new-green method to analyze the amount of PCB’s in the Hudson River as her senior research project at Marist College. …but what Jess loves the most, is the way chemistry has helped her peer deeper into the physical reality of this beautiful world. There is hidden treasure there.
