FAU Student Interning at Argonne National Lab!
Ryan Crichton, a student in the Charles E Schmidt College of Science, was awarded an internship at Argonne National Laboratory, working on a project entitled, Catalyst-based Oxidative Desulfurization. Ryan is researching sulfur compounds in petroleum which deactivate catalysts, form deposits that block filters, cause corrosion in engines, and lead to acid rain. The goal of this project is to decrease sulfur levels in samples of petroleum-based fuels below the current standards of the Environment Protection Agency (EPA). He is also interested in potential scale- up methods for industry. Ryan was a Peer Mentor for the Office of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry. Keep making FAU proud Ryan!

Did you know there is a club for students like you? The Council for Scholarship and Inquiry (CSI) at FAU is a student organization which is open to all FAU students in any department. In CSI, undergraduate researchers meet to:
- share their common experiences
- brainstorm how to overcome research-related hurdles
- learn about finding sources
- help each other turn the research experience into even bigger professional opportunities.
In addition, there are great leadership positions within this organization that will give you leadership experience that grad schools and future employers expect.
