Department of Chemistry, University of Alberta
Abbie Rubletz is a senior undergraduate student in the honors chemistry program at the University of Alberta. Her work with the Veinot research group has involved investigating methods of synthesizing "large" (d > 75 nm) silicon nanoparticles and understanding the systems from which they evolve. More specifically, her recent interests concern anomalous nanoparticle evolution from hydrogen silsesquioxane (HSQ)-derived systems. Abbie is passionate about engaging undergraduates and promoting student research involvement, having also served as President and Vice President of Finance of the undergraduate Chemistry Students' Association on campus. When not in the lab, she enjoys spending time with her cat, Boo, and doing puzzles.
