jenae_headshotKS-LSAMP would like to congratulate Jenae on completing her baccalaureate degree at K-State!

Jenae has been an active student during her time here at K-State. She was accepted into the Developing Scholars Program during her freshmen year. This program is for high-achieving, serious-minded students to conduct research projects in their field of study with faculty mentors. During her second year at K-State, Jenae had the opportunity to study abroad in Germany. Upon her return she next participated in a co-op with Cargill as a project engineer. Jenae worked at their Nebraska facility for eight months before returning to K-State. During her junior year she transitioned from being a DSP student to a LSAMP-DSP student and continued her research with Dr. Placidus Amama.

She has presented her research several times at the Developing Scholars Research Symposium. Most recently she was awarded a LSAMP travel awTate NSBE Nationalsard to attend and present her research at the 42nd Annual National Society for Black Engineers (NSBE) convention. Her poster was titled “Electrochemical Characterization of 3D Nanocarbon-Based Electrodes for High-Performance Lithium-Ion Batteries”.

Jenae is completing her degree in Chemical Engineering and will be working at Chevron Phillips in Texas.
