Emily Mikeska

BS in Chemistry, Abilene Christian University, 2019


I grew up on a small farm in south-central Texas and loved the firsthand perspective on science that I experienced in operating machines and gardening. After coming to ACU in 2016 as a music education major, I quickly made the transition to the field of chemistry. The incredible professors and experiences as a researcher and teaching assistant at ACU have inspired me to pursue a career in Inorganic Chemistry, beginning with graduate school at the University of Kansas.
