Elaine Liu comes to Emory Oberlin College where she was an active member of the chemistry community—while also taking classes in psychology, sociology, history, religion, and beyond. Elaine has also worked with the organization Graduate Women in Stem (GWIS). A particular focus of her work with GWIS was a series of articles on the struggles of women and feminists in STEM fields published in the GWIS quarterly magazine. After college, Elaine spent a year as an au pair in Paris, France, giving her an opportunity to explore Europe, including meeting family living in Denmark for the first time. She is excited to begin her next adventure at Emory and has a particular interest in catalyst synthesis. In addition to her strong chemistry background, Elaine is an accomplished dancer. She minored in dance in college and previously danced up to 24 hours per week as a pre-professional. Once she is settled in to Atlanta, Elaine hopes to take dance classes with the Atlanta Ballet.
