Nilai Patel | Chemistry Instructor 

University of California, Irvine

    B.S., Chemistry

I graduated UC Santa Cruz with a BS in Chemistry with a focus on Physical and Electro-Chemistry. I enjoy being an educational resource to students that don’t have regular access to a academic advisor and working with motivated students. I spent my undergraduate career synthesizing and characterizing nanomaterials as catalysts for redox reactions at the Chen Research Lab in UCSC. I was also a residential advisor for students enrolled in an high school summer research camp called COSMOS where I planned daily activities for 180 high schoolers interested in STEM. On my spare time I play basketball, play soccer, paint, read novels, and make music.
