Avery Long, (he/him)
Undergraduate Research Assistant
BS (Chemistry) – Yale University, USA - 2024
- Avery is studying the functionalization of gold nanoparticles; specifically, investigating whether particle anisotropy leads to increased sensitivity in glutathione-based Pb2+ detectors. Broadly, he hopes to apply chemistry to the development of sustainable materials and processes. He is currently most interested in functional materials, agricultural chemistry, and their interface, but this changes depending on what classes he is currently enjoying most.
- When he isn’t in lab, Avery is either teaching his friends how to ballroom dance, chipping away at his endless reading list, or talking about his home state of Michigan.
