Julia Brown ’19 — Greener Fuel through Chemistry

In the quest to find a fuel source that reduces carbon emissions, hydrogen seems like a good option, but the process to generate hydrogen gas results in carbon side products. Julia Brown ’19 has been working on a method to mimic natural processes of hydrogen production and will continue this summer as a Walsh research fellow in the lab of Dr. Maria Carroll, assistant professor of chemistry. Learn more about her research at the Annual Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity on Wednesday, April 25: https://engaged-learning.providence.edu/annual-celebration/

Following graduation, Brown will study for a master’s degree in management at the University of Notre Dame. She received the American Chemical Society Award for exceptional promise in the field of biochemistry and graduated magna cum laude with the highest academic rank in the biochemistry major.
