While at Drexel University, Holly has worked in the Natural Polymers and Photonics Laboratory under the direction of Professor Caroline Schauer (MSE). Her research involves creating novel sensors while incorporating thin films of biopolymer, chitosan, and gold nanoparticles to attract and detect the presence of toxic metal ions, such as mercury or lead in water. After graduation, Holly will be funded by NSF-International Research and Education in Engineering (IREE) to conduct research in France over the summer.
