About Georgia Institute of Technology School of Biological Sciences

Aquatic Chemical Ecology (ACE) at Georgia Tech is a summer research program supported by the National Science Foundation REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program. ACE at Georgia Tech gives you the opportunity to perform exciting research with our faculty in the schools of Biological Sciences, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Civil & Environmental Engineering, and Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering. You'll participate in research with one or more of our faculty, learn about careers in science and engineering, and see how scientists blend knowledge and skills from physics, chemistry and biology to investigate some of the most challenging problems in environmental sciences. We encourage applications from undergraduate students who are citizens or permanent residents of the U.S., especially attending universities other than Georgia Tech.


Physics Research Intern

May 2018 - August 2018 Atlanta, GA
“The most surprising thing about my internship are the other scientists that I work with everyday. My three roommates were all physics majors, like me, from large schools like University of Florida and a smaller college in Talladega. It has been a blessing to be with others who are as odd as I am. Waking up in the morning and preparing for seminars, we have ranging conversations that allow us to see through each other’s eyes. Although we are all different races and have different backgrounds, I laugh as loud with them as my long-time friends. More surprising are the attitudes of my mentors and principal investigators(PI’s), besides mandatory seminars and meetings, time is a social construct that no one pays attention to. Although there are hard deadlines, my PI understands that 7pm-2am may be a better time for me to complete my work than the conventional 8-5. With so much leeway and freedom, the work that is submitted should be up to par with the high expectation of the community.”
