Biography

Hi! My name is Sam Jarvis and I am from Long Island, New York. I graduated from
the University of Connecticut with a B.S. in Chemistry and a minor in Molecular
and Cell Biology. I decided to attend Penn State to pursue my MPS in Forensic
Science because of the variety of classes offered, hands-on experience, and
ability to explore both Forensic Chemistry and Biology despite being a
chemistry concentration. In my free time I like to kickbox, watch reality TV,
and listen to podcasts. For my research, I will be working on a combined
project with Dr. Holland and Dr. Dorman in the area of Environmental Forensics
on the impact of wastewater on microbial populations and the chemical
composition of soil.
