Graduate student Anna Huff works with Professor Kenneth Leopold on challenges using microwave spectroscopy to provide detailed characterization of molecules.

Gone is the rigid structure of formal chemistry divisions in favor of a dynamic palette of chemical foci that captures the essence of our interdisciplinary research efforts and addresses relevant chemical challenges in our society. Our researchers lead projects that often span two or more of these areas in order to discover novel solutions and cultivate a rigorous training environment. In preparation, our graduate students can take courses in chemistry, biochemistry, physics, mathematics, materials science, and/or chemical engineering, following a unified, flexible curriculum that is tailored to their interests and research needs.
