My name is Tanja Kovacevic and I am a rising senior at the University of Colorado at Denver. I am Chemistry major with a minor in Mathematics. My goal is to pursue a PhD in the nuclear/chemical sciences and computationally model systems which will contribute to the application of nuclear fission as a source of clean energy. I hope to help mitigate the energy crisis and move the world towards the use of cleaner energy sources. Outside of school I enjoy working out, going to events around town, and enjoying free time with friends and family.
