Samantha Page has extensive experience in organic and polymer chemistry. Samantha's doctoral research focused on developing a new synthetic polymer-based platform for biomedical applications, which led to co-authorship of eight peer-reviewed publications. She has also presented her research at both departmental and national meetings. During her time at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, she mentored several undergraduate and graduate students, and worked as a Teaching Assistant in the Polymer Science and Engineering Department.
