The Senior Program
All senior chemical physics students work collaboratively with faculty members on research projects as part of the Senior Program in either chemistry or physics. This intensive one- or two-semester project combines original scientific research with reading and understanding the scientific literature. It culminates in a senior thesis that is defended in a public presentation to departmental faculty and student peers.
Recent projects in chemical physics include:
- The Enediyne Anticancer Antibiotics: A Study of the Bergman Cyclization Energy Barriers of Esperamicin A1
