Agakidou is a junior majoring in Chemistry. She has been conducting research in Dr. Paul Wagenknecht’s lab since summer ’15 and she published her first research paper in the Organometallics Journal in August. On a daily basis, you will find her giving admission tours, putting on events with the Furman Creative Collaborative, or hanging out in the Trone Student Center studying, laughing, and being loud.
