Amy Duggal


I'm a military veteran with 6 years of honorable service in the US Navy Seabees, currently pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry. After graduation, I hope to either work for a company where I can utilize my lab skills or further my education. At CI, I'll be working on synthesis of lactam ring peptidomimetics as potential tools to study protein- protein interactions. These research experiences have broadened my knowledge on cutting edge technology and options for the future.

I was born and raised in sunny Oxnard. I attended Ventura College before I transferred over to University of California, Santa Barbara to study chemical engineering. While at UCSB I have joined the Nguyen research group where my project focuses on the temperature effects on exciton diffusion length in organic semiconductors. I participated in PIPELINES the summer of 2016. My group worked on Corrosion Resistant Reinforced Concrete for Marine Environments with guidance from our navy mentor Justin Foster and our graduate student mentor Brent Goodlet.
