Postdoctoral Fellows

Dr. Subhra Samanta


View Curriculum Vitae
2009 - 2015
Ph.D. at the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, Kolkata, India
with Prof. Abhishek Dey

Nov. 2015 - present
Postdoctoral Fellow in the Lehnert group
Research Project
Structural and Functional Modeling on Cytochrome P450 Enzymes
New picket fence and tailed porphyrins will be developed to accurately mimic the Cyt. P450 active site. The reaction of these complexes towards NO and O2 will then be studied, including electrocatalytic investigations.

Undergraduates

Diamond Thomas


Oct. 2014 - present
Undergraduate research student in the Lehnert group
Research Project
Ferrous Heme Complexes with Nitrosoalkanes
My research is focused on ferrous bis-picket fence porphyrins and the preparation of corresponding five- and six-coordinate complexes with nitrosoalkanes.


 
Paul Yousif


Sept. 2016 - present
Undergraduate research student in the Lehnert group
Research Project
New Redox-Active Compounds for Applications in Liquid Batteries
I am working on the preparation on new redox-active coordination compounds that are robust and can be cycled between different redox states. The electrochemical performance of these systems is tested using cyclic voltammetry and electrolysis. The complexes will be developed towards applications in large-scale liquid batteries for energy storage.
