Degree Tract: Thesis
Advisor: Dr. Henry Spratt
Research Interests: Being only my first semester of the Environmental Science Graduate Program, I am still conceptualizing different areas of research to determine what suits me best. On the other hand, participating in Dr. Spratt's bioremediation course has greatly sparked my interest. I believe my background in biochemistry provides great relation to the field of bioremediaton.
Interesting Fact About Austin: I was born and raised in Soddy Daisy, Tennessee. The tremendous quality of backpacking, rock climbing and mountain biking in the greater Chattanooga area has always fueled my passion for the natural environment. Given all of the nearby outdoor inspiration, I cannot think of a greater school than UTC to pursue a masters degree in environmental science.
