Cecelia Wood is a chemistry major and art history minor at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Her passion for geochemical scientific research has taken her to the classroom, to the laboratory, and now to the computer. She will be investigating how common pollutants interact with the surface of aragonite through computational simulations to gain a better understanding of how pollutants may affect important historical artifacts. Though Cecelia is new to computational chemistry, she plans to continue researching fluid-surface interfaces and organic-inorganic interactions by pursuing a PhD in geochemistry. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, crocheting, and watching rugby.
