EstherConwell

Michael L. Neidig, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, has been named a 2015 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow in Chemistry. Professor Neidig's research focuses on non-precious metal catalysis in organic chemistry, including iron-catalyzed cross-coupling and iron- and cobalt-catalyzed direct C-H functionalization. According to Chemistry Chair, Professor Todd Krauss, "Mike has gotten off to a fantastic start with his research program. His work on understanding the mechanism of iron-catalyzed reactions is world class and defines Mike as a leader in this field after just a few years."
