Faye Claire


Faye Claire transferred from San Joaquin Community College and graduated with her B.S. in Chemistry from UC Davis. As an undergraduate, she worked in the same lab as she does now. She learned that she wanted to go to graduate school and to continue the same research, so she decided to stick around and keep working here! Faye currently researches fullerenes and their interactions with other molecules. She uses analytical techniques such as X-ray crystallography to determine what her molecules look like. As a Ph.D. candidate of the Balch Lab, she recently received a fellowship to the Lawrence Berkley National Lab’s Advanced Light Source. Here she will continue her crystallography on fullerenes
