Visiting Assistant Professor of ChemistryTaylor Science Center 1059
Michael received his B.A. degree in chemistry from Queens College and his Ph.D. from the University of Alabama. His research experience focused on the understanding of supramolecular interactions for molecular sensor development, taking advantage of the low cost and high sensitivity associated with optical spectroscopic techniques. To date, Michael’s work has been published in four peer reviewed journals, with three more expected within the year, and he has presented his work at numerous American Chemical Society meetings and also at the 2019 Physical Organic Chemistry Gordon Research Conference. Michael was also the recipient of the Department of Education’s Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) fellowship for the 2017-18 academic year, where he received unique training in teaching lecture courses in organic chemistry and organometallics. Michael’s research interests include the development and fundamental understanding of functionalized organic molecules as building blocks towards supramolecular systems with practical applications in environmental, materials, and biological chemistry.
