Ryan SEOW, a Year 3 Chemistry student, discovered a newfound appreciation of organic chemistry after working on organometallic catalysis research alongside a team with largely different interests. In the process, he learned new laboratory techniques and how to think critically about the mechanisms and potential parameters for synthesis. He also honed his writing and presentation skills.
Towards becoming a Head Mentor, he gained insights into course planning and development by working collaboratively with students, peers and faculty. This allows him to better structure courses and guide students. Mentorship is an enriching experience where “I am an advisor, buddy and catalyst all at the same time!”
