Spring 2010 Chemistry Graduate Accepted to PhD Program at Notre Dame
Lindsay Baxter, one of our spring 2010 graduates in chemistry, has just been accepted to the PhD program in Chemistry at the University of Notre Dame. She will begin her studies in the fall of next year (2011) and will focus on theoretical/computational chemistry. In the mean time, Lindsay is conducting an internship at the Savannah River National Laboratory in the area of process modeling and computational chemistry. She has also been working on an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship proposal. Below are some comments from Lindsay about her acceptance to Notre Dame and her experience at ASU:
“As of Fall, 2011, I will be amongst the ranks of the Fighting Irish! I was accepted to the University of Notre Dame in pursuit of a Ph.D. in theoretical/computational chemistry. While I am excited, I must say that there is no doubt I am able to pursue this degree because of the education I received at Augusta State. The professors there worked above and beyond to provide a challenging teaching environment, while inviting us as students to experience hands-on research. I will never forget the impact their efforts made on my life, and I look forward to living by their example in my career as a chemist. Cheers, Augusta!”
Congratulations and best wishes to Lindsay!
