The Perks (and Flaws) of Tunnel Vision
Megan received her Ph.D. from the University of California-Irvine, pursuing research on organometallic
lanthanide and actinide chemistry in the group of Bill Evans. She is currently a postdoc in the Tolman group, working as part of the Center for Sustainable Polymers. She is preparing to start a faculty position at the University of Southern California in the fall. From the age of 16, Megan knew that she wanted to be a chemistry professor and has had tunnel vision ever since. She will discuss how this tunnel vision was useful to prepare for her dream career path early, but made her less open-minded to other career options in chemistry.
