Ph.D., Cornell University, 2003

Research Interests:

Primarily interested in the design, synthesis, isolation, and characterization of novel inorganic molecules. Concentration towards building new complexes that either model or affect new small molecule transformations relevant to the industrial sector. Mechanistic studies in order to uncover subtle details of catalytic processes in hopes of building upon or challenging current models of molecular structure, periodic trends, reactivity, and bonding.
