Graeme Murray

Education:

University of Chicago, B.A. in Physics with Honors and B.A. in Chemistry (2014)
Hometown: Seattle, WA
Thesis adviser: None chosen yet

Research interests:

Graeme's undergraduate research used kinked silicon nanowires as cantilevers to measure inter- and intracellular forces including muscle contraction. At VCU, Graeme hopes to combine his background and interests in Physics, Chemistry, and Medicine.

Personal bio:

Graeme grew up in Seattle, WA with his twin brother, Alastair. For three summers, he worked as a bicycle mechanic and has raced bicycles since he was a teenager. Graeme is excited to be a Ram and cheer the Rams to another Final Four.
