    College: Liberal Arts and Sciences Department: Chemistry
    Title: Assistant Professor
    Office: 5405 SES Phone: 5-0242
    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    Synthetic organic chemistry, catalysis, natural products, new reaction discovery, organometallics

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 10

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Prerequisites courses: Chem 232. Chem 233 & 234 preferred.

    Priority is given to Chemistry and Biochemistry majors and Honors College students. Freshman, sophomores, juniors, and seniors are welcome; no prior research experience required. Students who will commit to research over multiple semesters are strongly preferred.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    Students will conduct supervised laboratory research in our lab. Students will learn skills including strategic synthetic planning, executing synthetic procedures, purification, analytical data collection, and interpretation of data. Since progress in synthetic chemistry is dependent on physical progress in the lab, a significant time investment is required. Students are expected to participate in weekly group meetings discussing research progress. Students will be encouraged to present their results at conferences and journal publications.
