Winston Plunkett

B. Sc. Chemistry
Research with Prof. Lin Pu

Winston grew up in Williamsburg, VA, and graduated from Walsingham Academy High School. Winston has been doing research in the Pu Lab since fall of his third year. The focus of his project has been BINOL-based fluorescent molecular sensors. While initially focused on fluorescent differentiation of chiral molecules, his project has recently shifted more toward the fluorescent enhancement of such sensors in the presence of water and amines. Winston also enjoys cooking and strategic board games. Next year he will be attending law school with the goal of practicing patent law.
