During the summer of 2020, Chyanne worked remotely with her faculty advisor Dr. Amanda Oldacre to write a research grant for submission to the Petroleum Research Fund. Over the course of eight weeks, she and her advisor researched functionalization and activation methods of petroleum coke. Over the duration of the summer, she also became accustomed to the writing form of a grant; she discusses her research and writing processes in her recorded presentation. Chyanne is continuing her work with Dr. Oldacre and hopes to continue pursuing chemistry research after graduation.
