Undergraduate Students

Danielle Yarbrough

Danielle is from Winnsboro, Texas and recently graduated with her B. S. in Chemical Engineering from A&M. She is working as a technician in the lab during her gap semester before starting a doctoral program in Fall 2020. She works on characterizing temperature- and pH-responsive layer-by-layer polymer films intended for use in drug release applications, under former student Victoria Albright. Her hobbies include dance, painting, and reading thriller novels.

Molly Guyette

Molly is a senior majoring in Biomedical Science with hope to enter vet school at Texas A&M in the fall. She enjoys spending time with her two pets Norma and Winston and hanging out with friends. This is her second semester working at the Sukhishvili lab and she thoroughly enjoys research. Molly works on surface wettability on polyphosphazene-containing LbL films with Jordan.

Logan Morris

Logan is from Round Rock, Texas and is a freshman hoping to major in Materials Science and Engineering. He enjoys martial arts, playing games, and 3D printing. Logan works on hydrogen bonding star polymers under Alex through the Aggie Research Program.

Edward Wang

Edward is from Houston, Texas and is a freshman progressing towards his B.S. in Biochemistry. He is a member of the Aggie Research Program, working on star polymers in hydrogen-bonded layer-by-layer films with Aliaksei.

Erik Sparrow

Erik is from Houston, Texas and is a Freshman undergraduate looking to major in Chemical Engineering. He is currently working under Alex with star polymers in hydrogen-bonded LbL films through the Aggie Research Program.

Jeremy Zheng

Current work: Layer-by-Layer coatings for Potential Biomedical Applications. I am working with different polymers and building films, so it can be used in experiments to determine if it is applicable for a chosen biomedical application.
Research interest: I am interested in biomedical topics such as bio-responses and how to improve biocompatibility for our current medical devices.
Education and Prior Experience:
B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, 2020
