Connor Allen is from New City, NY. He graduated in 2016 from Clarkstown South High School and currently attends Binghamton University as an undergraduate chemistry major minoring in German studies. His goal is to continue his studies in an M.D./PhD program to combine organic chemistry and medicine. Connor reads his textbooks and studies in his free time. In the rest of his time, he watches T.V. and plays the trumpet with the Harpur Jazz Ensemble and his new group, "Jazztro Physics."
Olivia is from Queens, NY and graduated from The Mary Louis Academy in 2016. She is currently an undergraduate student at Binghamton University majoring in Political Science with minors in French and Chemistry. After graduation, she hopes to attend medical school and one day become an Emergency Physician. Olivia is dedicated to her pursuit of interdisciplinary learning and takes advantage of her undergraduate research assistant position to explore her interests in mechanistic organic chemistry. When she is not in the lab or in class, Olivia spends her time working on the Executive Board of the Binghamton University Fencing Club and spending time with family and friends.
Kelsey Devine is a graduate of Hauppauge High School’s class of 2016, when she proceeded to study Mathematical Science with a dual minor in Chemistry and Spanish at Binghamton University. Upon graduating, Kelsey would love to attend medical school to pursue her passion of becoming a doctor. As an undergraduate research assistant, Kelsey is dedicated to learning more about the physical, and mechanistic aspects of organic chemistry, as well as developing strong research methods that she can carry with her throughout the rest of her career. Outside of being a student, Kelsey is currently a Residential Assistant for Hinman College, as well as the Education Officer for the Medical Roots Project. Both activities enable her to communicate and get to know others, which is her favorite thing to do.
Vraj is from Carmel, NY. He graduated from Carmel High School in 2016 and is currently attending Binghamton University as an undergraduate majoring in biochemistry. After graduation, he plans to pursue medicine. Outside of class and research, Vraj loves to spend time with his friends and family, and enjoys watching sports.
