Saskia Engle

Undergraduate Researcher

About Saskia
Saskia moved to Richmond from her Northern Virginia hometown in 2014 to study biology at VCU. In her second year, she took her first semester of organic chemistry and fell in love with the subject, so much so that she decided to major in chemistry as well. At VCU, she holds office as Vice President for TriBeta, the biology honor society, and is a member of the ACS student affiliates. Saskia shares her passion for science and math through volunteering with S.T.E.A.M. (STEM plus arts), where she teaches local students about chemistry by demonstrating exciting experiments. She will be working with Prof. Kelly as part of the Medicines for All Initiative, designing more efficient syntheses of active pharmaceutical ingredients to reduce the costs of critical medicines around the world. In her spare time, she enjoys singing, playing guitar, and watching youtube videos about how weird the universe is.
