Gauri Nabar
Social Officer

I am a third year Graduate student co-advised by Dr. Barbara Wyslouzil and Dr. Jessica Winter. Prior to joining OSU, I completed by Bachelors in Chemical Engineering at the Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT, formerly known as UDCT), Mumbai, India. A fondness for organic chemistry and reaction engineering during my undergrad years sparked my interest in Research. For my Research Thesis, I am studying the morphology of polymeric nano-composites across different synthesis conditions for various biomedical applications.
Apart from Research, I enjoy dancing, reading and going for long walks. I like the graduate student culture in our Dept. and have enjoyed events organized by CEGC in the past. I hope to maximize student interactions through various activities as a part of CEGC 2014!
