New Reactivity to Solve Chemical Challenges
Synthetic challenges inspire the development of new reactivity. Our group is focused on discovering new reactions that can be applied to solve long-standing chemical problems. In 2 short years, our philosophy has resulted in a new platform of iron catalysis and on the discovery of a new aromaticity-breaking rearrangement. These contributions have been applied in cross-electrophile coupling reactions and on the synthesis of new materials. In this talk, we will discuss the approach, optimization details, and synthetic applications.

Student Research Showcase
Hosted in May, prior to Commencement, the Research Poster Showcase and Award Recognition Ceremony is an opportunity for the Chemistry & Biochemistry students showcase their research and celebrate the accomplishments of our graduating seniors.
Southern California Conferences for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) is an organization of Southern California faculty, administrators, and interested members of the community who share the common goal of improving education for college and university students through hands-on experiences of undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity. SCCUR’s cornerstone program is a one-day conference held each November on the campus of a college or university in Southern California. Its purpose is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of the best research, scholarship, and creative work of undergraduates in the region, and thus to encourage excellence in undergraduate achievement.
Super Stem Saturday
Get involved and volunteer at one of our booths! Super STEM Saturday is held the second Saturday in the month of March and is part of the San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering. This event is free and open to the public.
