Hi, I'm Natalie!

I am a third-year chemistry major at Georgia Tech focusing on Computer Science. I like petting cute puppies, baking things that are sweet, and wearing awesome socks.

I spent the beginning of my time in undergrad focusing on synthetic chemistry research to develop pharmaceutically relevant small molecules. However, I started getting into Computer Science to help with my data analysis. I started to find this really interesting and now I've been teaching myself lots of new things and taking more Computer Science classes.

Computer Science

In my most recent project, I built a program called My Angel Sight that helps drivers become aware of their distracted driving and incentives attentive driving. The program tracks a drivers movements and determine if they are a distracted or not. This was awarded 1st place in the Experienced Hack Category at HackAuburn and winner of TSYS sponsor prize. Check out our demo and see more information at myangelsight.com.

This summer I will be at UPS in their supply chain division working on developing a new system that manages software updates! Check out my other projects on my GitHub!

Chemistry

I most recently worked at UC Berkeley in the College of Chemistry as a scholar in the Amgen Scholars Program. While there I developed and iridium catalyzed allylic substitution reaction that makes enantioenriched fluorinated molecules. At Georgia Tech I work in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry in a lab where I focus on developing a reaction that produces α-trifluoromethylated ketones by reacting silyl enol ethers with a radical CF3 source in the presence of a Co(II) catalyst.

Baking

I love using my free time to tackle challenging baking techniques using my understanding of chemistry. Perfecting these bakes is a super fun time and I get to learn more throughout the process.
