The Chemistry department is happy to announce that Dr. Casey Wade has accepted an offer for an Assistant Professor position in the Chemistry Department.
Casey’s research interests are centered in synthetic inorganic chemistry, with a particular focus on inorganic/organic hybrid materials. Casey’s research aims at Brandeis will focus on new materials for metal separations and catalyst design, including the incorporation of discreet catalytic centers into porous materials.
Casey will be starting his position at Brandeis in July, and is actively recruiting new graduate student and undergraduate researchers for the fall semester.
Congratulations to Professor Christine Thomas this year's recipient of the 14th Annual Alberta Gotthardt and Henry Strage Award for Aspiring Young Science Faculty.
Professor Thomas' research focuses on the design and invention of catalysts that have the potential to convert abundant yet inert molecules such as CO2, N2 into useful fuels, thereby providing possible solutions to nation’s energy generation problems. She is one of the most promising young chemists in the country. Professor Thomas’ research has been supported by national science foundation and department of energy. Her work has been recognized by a Sloan Research Fellowship and an NSF CAREER award. She was also selected as an Organometallic Fellow in 2012. She is also one of Brandeis’ outstanding teachers in sciences. For her dedication to teaching, she received the Michael L. Walzer’56 Award for excellence in Teaching at Brandeis.
Brandeis combines the power of a university research program with the personality of a small teaching college.
Chemistry graduates are sought after by industry, government and academic recruiters for their solid grounding in physical sciences and technology.
