Jassie Kaur graduated magna cum laude with a BS in chemistry and a minor in philosophy from Drexel in 2022. Jassie’s academic research experience started in the laboratory of Dr. Hai-feng Ji, where she investigated the electronic properties of organic crystals. She was also awarded an NSF REU in 2021 to perform research in the laboratory of Dr. Marisa Kozlowski at the University of Pennsylvania, where she performed both computational and synthetic research for the study of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) molecules. As a part of Drexel’s co-op system, she also spent six months as an analytical chemistry intern at Dupont in Wilmington, DE in 2019. In 2022, she joined the laboratory of Dr. Sarah Wengryniuk at Temple University working on the I(III)-mediated C-H amination of electron-rich arenes.
At Drexel, Jassie was involved with the Pennoni Honors College through the Honors Program, as a 2018 STAR Scholar and Velay Fellow, and as a SuperNova Undergraduate Research Fellow.
