Department of Chemistry Seminar Series: Carl K. Brozek, University of Oregon
Science Building 1, room 107, 1025 SW Mill Street


University of Oregon Assistant Professor, Carl K. Brozek, will present Redox Activity of Soft, Dynamic, and Porous Materials at the Department of Chemistry's weekly seminar series 

About Professor Brozek

Dr. Brozek has been an assistant professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Oregon and a full member of the Materials Science Institute since Fall 2018. Previously, he was an Innovation Postdoctoral Fellow of Clean Energy under Prof. Gamelin at the University of Washington and the Washington Research Foundation. There he studied the redox chemistry of colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals for use in energy storage and tunable optical devices. Carl completed his PhD at MIT with Prof. Dinca, where he pioneered the use of the porous materials termed metal-organic frameworks as site-isolated atomically precise heterogeneous catalysts. His research training began as an undergraduate with the late Prof. Hillhouse at the University of Chicago, studying redox chemistry of low-coordinate nickel complexes. In recognition of his work, Carl was awarded the ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry Young Investigator Award (2016), Davison Thesis Prize (2015), NSF Graduate Fellowship (2010), and the Beckman Scholars Fellowship (2008).
