Fellows Friday

by Alexis Hartranft on October 15, 2021

This week we are excited to highlight Senior Tess Weidenkopf! Tess is currently finishing a project for Departmental Honors in the Biochemistry Major and is developing a methodology to analyze suspect Metformin HCl pharmaceuticals from Sub-Saharan Africa via HPLC. She also is working on a new project for Departmental Honors in the Theatre Major. The project is a dramaturgical study of Lillian Hellman’s The Children’s Hour focusing on the psychological development and mental health issues of young women in single sex education as well as the historical context of the production. Since starting her Research Fellowship, Tess has attended a conference at Harvard University where she presented her research on the development of nanocrystals that she completed with Dr. Hughes. She also won the Irene Adler Meritorious Award in Dramaturgy for her work on Silent Sky. Fantastic work Tess!
