Requirements for Undergraduates to Conduct Research

Professor Research Description Mimimum Qualifications Currently accepting Undergraduates
Dr. William Acree The Acree lab focuses on experimental determination and correlation of solute transfer properties. Completed General Chemistry No
Dr. Oliver Chyan The Chyan group is interested in interfacial materials chemistry applied to the microelectronics and energy sectors. Highly motivated students that have finished Organic Chemistry and Quantitative Analysis Positions in Spring 2020
Dr. Andrés Cisneros Development and application of computational simulation methods to investigate a variety of chemical and biochemical systems including DNA repair enzymes and their relation to cancer, ionic liquids, and inorganic complexes. Inquire with professor No
Dr. Thomas Cundari Development and application of high-accuracy methods for modeling of transition metals. Application of theory to the rational design of metal-based catalysts, sensors, optics and materials. Chemistry of the copper- and zinc-triads. Multiple bonding involving the transition metals and heavier main group elements. Completed General and Organic Chemistry; have a block of time in the afternoon, 2-3 hours Yes
Dr. Francis D'Souza Supramolecular chemistry; advanced synthesis of light energy harvesting, optoelectronic and sensing materials; solar cells; ultrafast laser spectroscopy. Completed Organic Chemistry Yes
Dr. Teresa Golden Students in the Golden lab will work on electrochemical and x-ray diffraction experiments and also do metallurgical prep of samples. Completed Quantitative Analysis with a A or B; already having had forensic chemistry or instrumental is a plus but not required. Yes-1 student
Dr. Jeffry Kelber Analytical Chemistry, Physical Chemistry; Material Science, Surface Science. Inquire with professor Inquire with professor
Dr. Paul Marshall Research in the Marshall lab is aimed at understanding chemistry in flames and in the atmosphere, including the generation and environmental fate of pollutants, and is focused on short-lived intermediates. We offer computational chemistry projects and experiments centered on detection of radicals via laser-induced fluorescence and infrared spectroscopy. Interest and enthusiasm to learn more about Physical Chemistry Yes
Dr. Jason McAfee Developing basis set methods to solve small quantum dynamical systems Inquire with professor Yes
Dr. LeGrande Slaughter The Slaughter Lab aims to discover new catalytic reactions that form chemical bonds in novel ways, with possible applications in the synthesis of complex organic molecules, energy production, and materials synthesis. We do this by creating novel transition metal organometallic complexes containing structurally tunable organic ligands, which bind to metal atoms and fundamentally alter their reactivity. Compled General Chemistry, preferred completion of Organic Chemistry; students must be willing to commit to at least 1 year of research Yes
Dr. Guido Verbeck Analytical Chemistry; Mass Spectrometry; Instrument Development. Completed Organic Chemistry and Quantitative Analysis Yes
Dr. Hong Wang Asymmetric catalysis through cooperative enamine-metal acid catalysis; functional organic materials based on pi-extended porphyrins; development of small molecule inhibitors targeting STAT3. Interest in chemistry; willing to commit to at least 1 year in the lab Yes-1 student
Dr. Hao Yan Hao's lab studies the chemistry of molecules and solids under mechanical stress, with the hope of making exotic materials, discovering new reactions and understanding life in extreme environments. Completed General Chemistry; prefer at least 1 semester with Organic Chemistry, Quantitative Analysis, or Physical Chemistry Yes
