Education:

  • B.S. in Chemistry with a minor concentration in Math, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI)

Research focus: 

Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are a class of highly crystalline 3-dimensional coordination networks composed of metal-nodes joined together with organic linkers.  Using simple organic/coordination chemistry, these highly porous materials are easily designable and tunable towards several applications including small molecule capture and separation in aqueous and gas media.  After successfully utilizing MOFs for capturing toxic arsenic species, I have extended my work to utilize the MOF’s pore to trap other substrates, such as hydrocarbons and noxious pollutants.

Hobbies:

Hanging out with friends, working out, and movies/Netflix
