Research

Brief Overview of Research Projects

Post-Doctoral

I used computaional chemistry to probe properties of molecular/oligomeric/polymeric organic systems in close collaboration with experimentalists.

Graduate

My research focused on new conjugated pi systems based on the indeno[1,2-b]fluorene scaffold. The goal was to develop new organic materials that could be used in organic electronics such as organic field effect transistors (OFET) and organic photovoltaics (OPV). These technologies could allow for the rapid, large scale printing of flexible electronic devices. In addition to synthesizing a number of derivatives, I explored these types of compounds computationally and completed some basic materials characterization.

Undergraduate

The focus of the my undergraduate research was discovering new reactivities and novel organic compounds via organic anion radicals.

About Me

A Brief Introduction

I grew up in central Illinois and began my undergraduate education at Illinois Central College. I continued my undergraduate education at Illinois State University where I developed a passion for research. I received a bachelor’s degree in chemistry with a minor in mathematics in 2009. During graduate studies at the University of Oregon I was able to continue research and expand it to include undergraduate and K-12 science education.

When I have free time I enjoy drinking good tea, playing board games, sailing, cooking, and biking.

Professional Interests

I am interested in teaching chemistry and science literacy while incorporating computational chemistry if possible. I also have a new interest in steady-state economics.
