Cheyenne Brindle received her B.A. at Reed College, where she developed a love of science. After a bried stint at Caltech, she earned her doctorate in chemistry at Stanford University before moving east to take a position as an American Cancer Society postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University. In her current position at Trinity, she investigates the use of bisulfite as an inexpensive method to purify or remove carbonyl compounds from mixtures and novel catalyst designs based on replacing costly and expensive metals with "greener" organic molecules capable of catalyzing a wide variety of reactions. Using these synthetic innovations, she and her team of undergraduate scientists are synthesizing a library of novel antibiotic compounds.
