About this team member

College: Centre College, Danville, Kentucky; graduated with a B.S. in Chemistry in June 2001

As an undergraduate, Dan did research in the summer of 2001 in polymer synthesis from natural materials under Dr. Pavel Krasutsky. He was a member of the IGERT program at Michigan. Through that program, he spent the summer of 2002 at the University of South Australia doing research in hydrosilylation chemistry.
