We are actively searching for motivated graduate and undergraduate researchers to join the group. Past group members have gone on to have successful careers in both academia and industry.


Students in my group are exposed to a wide variety of techniques: Organic synthesis is used to make new ligands, inorganic and organometallic chemistry are used to make new metal complexes, and NMR spectroscopy is used extensively to study reactants and products.  In fact, we run many reactions inside NMR tubes because we can easily detect some sensitive reaction intermediates.  Many complexes are air-sensitive, so students in my group learn how to handle compounds in inert-atmosphere glove boxes or in Schlenk apparatus.
