Julia Zhao


Julia Zhao is a sophomore at Rice University working towards a bachelors of science in chemistry. Her past research includes computational modeling of biomolecules as well as analysis of particle-tracking trajectories. Her current project combines spectroscopy with electrochemistry to study the properties of gold nanoparticle dimers. Julia is a proud board member of Catalyst, Rice’s undergraduate research journal, and Owlchemy, the chemistry club on campus. When not at lab or the library, Julia can be found at Lovett College, making up the sleep she lacks and brainstorming names for her future cats.
