My name is Kiara Lewis and I am originally from New Orleans, LA. I am in my last semester at Spelman College majoring in Chemistry/Chemical Engineering before I switch to an engineering school of my choice. I have research experience in 2D IR spectroscopy, which helped me to develop the interest in research that I currently have. Outside of academics, I enjoy reading, watching movies, spending time with friends and family, and going to the gym.
