Natalia joined the Cease lab while still in high school, and played a major role on the team despite her busy schedule with classes and ASU marching band. Natalia was a Barrett Honors College student and joint chemistry and physics major. She brought skill and technique to analyses in the lab, including carbohydrate and protein quantification in plants and soil.
