Generate hypotheses, design experiments, collect data, and communicate results.
The Lewis & Clark chemistry faculty believe that learning to generate hypotheses, design experiments, collect data, and communicate results best prepares students for future endeavors, whether that is work in a laboratory, classroom, medical practice, or business. Thus, we are committed to providing research opportunities within the curriculum as well as outside, under the supervision of faculty mentors. The college’s location, close to Oregon Health and Science University, Nike, and Intel, facilitates collaborations, internships, and employment for chemistry majors.

One of my favorite classes was Gender and Sexuality in the U.S. It really opened my mind, made me challenge views that I’ve always had growing up, and helped me find and understand my identity.

My favorite course was Ordinary Differential Equations. This class greatly tested my interdisciplinary skills and enabled me to use knowledge I had gained from all different kinds of classes at Lewis & Clark to come up with creative ways to construct, manipulate, and use models.

I founded a nonprofit called CareMeKuc in the beginning of college that partners with local stakeholders to rehabilitate child soldiers in northern Uganda. As part of that, I worked with chemistry professor Janis Lochner to address local dietary health problems such as kwashiorkor.
