Webmaster: Kazuki Imasato
Director of Marketing: Kevin McClelland
I am a 5th year graduate student in the Chemistry department working for Professor Emily Weiss. My research focuses on using semiconductor nanoparticles, or quantum dots, as photocatalysts for organic and polymer synthesis. Specifically, I am interested in how the surface chemistry of these materials can be tuned to optimize their reactivity and selectivity.
