Nicole is originally from San Diego and earned her B.S. in Chemistry from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2021. She moved to Eugene, Oregon to continue her education at the University of Oregon where she just graduated in June with a Masters of Science in Physical Chemistry. She did research in computational chemistry and worked on a number of different projects, but her favorite part of her time at UO was being a lab instructor for the general chemistry lab series. Outside of working and school, Nicole enjoys skiing, hiking, baking, and reading!
