  • B.Sc., Chemistry, Saint Mary’s College of California – Moraga, CA
Activities
  • Develop recrystallization strategies to improve the quality of crystals for diffraction measurements.
  • Solve crystallographic problems such as twinning and disorders.
  • Determine absolute configurations on organic molecules.
  • Work on repair and maintenance of the diffractometer and the auxiliary equipment (chiller, cryo, etc.).
  • Train new users to the X-ray diffraction instrument.
  • Prepare crystallographic reports for publication and submission of the data to the Cambridge Structural Database.
