My Journey to The Wagner Plan

Hello Everyone! It is a warm and sunny day by the bay here on Long Island.

So many thoughts were running through my...

Unexpected Discoveries

Four years ago, I would have never thought that I would be involved in a research project in which I work with bacteria and organometallic compounds. As a second-semester sophomore, I have started a project with two other undergraduate Wagner science students, Daniel Cimilluca and Sandra Minchala. Our project not only involves three undergraduate science students, but also three different science professors of unique specialties: Dr....
