My name is Brian Valladares, and I am from Chicago, Illinois. Currently, I am a junior at Williams College studying Chemistry with a concentration in Public Health. My research interests focus on developing novel molecules with biological applications that can have a larger impact in society. I plan on pursuing a PhD in organic chemistry with the goal of becoming a medicinal chemist. Outside of the lab, I enjoy playing soccer, exploring new restaurants, and listening to music.
