Since it is the last Friday of the month we thought we could take this opportunity to highlight some alumni who are doing interesting work with their Loyola degrees.
This week’s Great Scientist is Janie Butler, Biochemistry major, Class of 2018. Janie was very active during her time at Loyola, especially in the chemistry department, serving as a general chemistry teaching assistant and SI leader. She participated in research at Loyola and while studying abroad at the University of Auckland.
After hearing John Warner (@JohnWarnerOrg) speak at Loyola’s 2017 Grand Seminar, Janie caught the green chemistry bug. In the years since, she’s been working for a Green Chemistry Education nonprofit, @beyondbenign , and is an advocate for sustainable science in the classroom. She has presented at over 10 conferences across the country with topics ranging from elementary sustainable STEM to learning chemistry through invention, and even was accepted to present at SXSW 2020.
