Palmer, David

David Palmer
Major: 
Chemical Engineering

What is the RISE area of interest during your first year and why?: 

I would like to do research. I plan on getting a job in one of the chemical industries when I graduate. I may not get any research experience at a job and I think it would be great to get some as an undergraduate. I truly like learning and applying what I learn. I have learn a lot in my classes, but research would allow me to apply and enhance my knowledge.

What is the RISE area of interest during your second year and why?: 

I would like to do instruction during my second year. I have always heard that teaching is one of the best ways of learning. I like learning new things in my courses and I like teaching people new things. I think that I would be a good at helping the students at what they are struggling with. If I don’t get my first two options I would probably like to do service.

What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 

Currently I am a member or AIChE, the professional society for chemical engineers.

What is your cool engineering experience?: 

One of my cool engineering experiences was when I designed and built bat houses for my Eagle Scout Project back in high school.
