Evan Patrick  

Sant Patel  


evangMy name is Evan Gildernew. My Grandfather purchased a chemistry set for me when I was 9 and we completed experiments at his dining room table for many years. My Father ran a construction company from which I drew many materials, this allowed my chemistry experiments to continue well into high school culminating in the construction of a reflux column and an FM radio transmitter. I graduated from Covenant College with History and Psychology degrees and a goal to go into counseling but ended up working at an Investment Advisory firm. Three years ago I decided I wanted to change the course of my life and started completing the requirements for a Chemical Engineering degree with a minor in Chemistry. I have always been drawn to research and when I heard Dr. Yang's research goals I knew I wanted to be a part of the work. My current research project is in the adsorption modeling of water. I tutor Chemistry at McCallie school and work as youth director for East Ridge Presbyterian Church. I enjoy road cycling and kayaking.
