We work with Cal Poly undergraduates to train them in many areas of chemical research. We focus on problems related to artificial photosynthesis, phototoxins and phototherapeutics. Students working on our team have the opportunity to learn and apply:

  • Synthesis and characterization
  • Quantum chemical methods (computational chemistry and scientific programming)
  • Steady-state optical spectroscopy
  • Time-resolved optical spectroscopy
  • Electrochemistry
  • Nanoparticle synthesis and modification
  • Instrument design and construction
  • Photochemical methods
  • Chemical kinetics and reaction mechanisms
