Work History
Undergraduate Summer Lab Intern, 05/2019 - 08/2019
University Of Kansas Lawrence, KS,
  • Assisted in determining and recording spatial changes of sediment transport along erodible bed(flume) with impact of surface hydrology in order to confirm equilibrium condition.
  • Compiled and calculated 2 months of daily data on flow weight, flow velocity and sediment transport during 20 experimental trials to figure spatial change of sediment load, to aid confirm reach of equilibrium condition and transport capacity.
  • Followed Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) to dilute concentrated acid into acid bath every other day for 6 laboratory rooms, washed lab apparatus and placed them in acid bath to prevent contamination.
  • Prepared plant and soil sample by drying 30 large sacks of plant and 20 pounds of soil and grinding both soil and plant from West Virginia. Prep samples in ceramic plate and analyzed both plant and soil using LECO analyzer to measure wide range of total organic and inorganic compounds such as, carbon, sulfur, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen in each sample.
  • Calculated and demonstrated amount of nutrients in both plant and soil samples in line graph using excel.
  • Created over 2 research summaries and presented them to supervisors to advocate further research.
  • All assigned duties were recorded, completed, reviewed, presented to mentors and submitted to meet all deadline before completing internship.
Field Research Assistant, 05/2018 - 08/2018
NEIU Native Mussels Survey City, STATE,
  • Assisted in native mussel survey at eight different site of north brunch Chicago River and analyzed variables affecting mussel colony success downstream.
  • Collected and identified native and non-native mussel species in Chicago River for 8 weeks at different sites each day and analyzed/recorded potential causes of native mussels' population decline or increase such as turbidity, temperature, nutrients (phosphates, nitrates, ammonia) and anthropogenic organic pollutants (pesticides, fuels, industrial chemicals, solvents, degreasers, etc.).
  • Recorded number of native mussels found each day and measured width/ length of each mussel.
  • Organized data on excel to improve Chicago Field Museum's native mussel database.

  • Leveraged highly effective communication and active listening skills with mentor to accomplish common research goals.
  • Organized and conducted two-month research from start to finish on effect of field sampling strategies on stable water isotope signature: implication for isotope hydrograph separation by designing effective questionnaires and data entry procedures.
  • Collected water sample from storm event at agricultural drainage ditch (ALG watershed).
  • Designed and constructed Incubators at 4 different evaporative control measures to store ISCO bottles containing storm sample water.
  • Gathered, arranged and recorded accurate daily temperatures of incubators to create representative graphs and charts highlighting results for presentations.
  • Operated and cleaned Liquid Water Isotope Analyzer and analyzed water samples using stable water isotope analyzer for oxygen-16 and oxygen-18 ratio in storm water sample.
  • Recorded, organized, extracted data from liquid water analyzer and performed statistical analysis using excel and R statistical software.
  • Disseminated research findings to various personnel in different formats, including posters, PowerPoint presentations and spreadsheets.
  • Presented poster of experiment and results at SACNAS National Scientific Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.
