Faces of Tennessee Women in STEM

Dr. Andrienne Friedli

Professor, Chemistry | Assistant to the Vice Provost for Research | Middle Tennessee State University

How did you become interested in math or science field while at high school?

I was interested in science before high school. I liked all science, and particularly enjoyed earth science in middle school.

Why did you choose to work in your field?

I came from a family with many chemists, and grew up in an industrial community. I had role models in STEM and always thought of science and engineering as the normal career path to take.

What are some areas of your job that you like the most?

I like working with students on problem-solving, in and outside lab. I also enjoy helping other faculty realize their research potential.

What one thing would you tell a middle or high school girl who is considering majoring in STEM in college?

Don't ever give up and find a support group.
