WIC+ Travel Grant Summary – Natalie Golota, Experimental Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Conference

The WIC+ Professional Development grant helped me attend the Experimental Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Conference (ENC) in Orlando, Florida in April 2022. I was selected to give an oral presentation which was an extremely valuable experience. This was my first conference talk and the funding from WIC+ helped promote the progress made on the fabrication of single crystal diamond rotors and their use in magnetic resonance experiments. The work is currently unpublished and being able to share it allowed me to receive constructive feedback prior to journal submission. Furthermore, this experience helped me gain experience in preparing and presenting my research and I gained further confidence in my own work through this process. Finally, I was able to network and make personal connections that will no doubt be important for my career in the future.
