Preparing for presentations

This week I started to make a posterboard for the last day of this internship. It was a little bit tricky to figure out how to make a posterboard on Powerpoint, but, once you get the hang of it, it is not so bad. It was also difficult to decide what to put on the board, since I have a lot of data. I asked the lead scientist on what I should do, and he just told me to make it interesting and to direct it toward the audience that will see my posterboard. Besides that, I have been doing second runs of the same compounds, to test for reproducibility. 

End of research is in sight

With over 20 different compounds analyzed via cyclic voltammetry, I would say that data collection for this entire project is about complete. It seems that over the span of this internship, I have collected enough data for a publcation or so. At the end of the week, we had the pleasure of going on a field trip to astoria to see what it is like to be a field researcher. The environment is entirely different than in a lab setting, and I can see how people can become drawn to the idea of doing science in nature.
