Ellyn Peters (2018 chemistry major, biology minor) received the distinction of Honorable Mention in the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program competition. In her second year of an organic chemistry PhD program at the University of Utah, Ellie is developing molecular descriptors for the use in statistical modeling of catalytic transformations. While at Augsburg, Ellie completed two summers of research, one as a Lindstrom Scholar and one as a Give to the Max Scholar. She also presented her findings regionally and nationally. In addition to being an Honors Program Graduate Ellie was President of Augsburg’s Chemistry Club.
