I am a new faculty member at the University of Minnesota and I am excited to launch my research program in summer 2020.  My group will work at the interface of organic, organometallic, catalysis, and polymer chemistry. Students will learn to apply catalysis and physical organic chemistry to problems in polymer chemistry. This could involve developing new methods and exploring their mechanisms, characterization of new materials, or eventually exploring applications. If you are interested, I hope to meet with you during one of our prospective graduate student weekends, or you can contact me directly at [email protected]  Learn more about our future research directions on the Research tab above!
