The Department of Chemistry is pleased to announce that Dr. Korey Carter will be joining the faculty as an Assistant Professor beginning January 2021.  Dr. Carter graduated with a BS in Physics from Michigan State University in 2011 and received a PhD in Chemistry from The George Washington University in 2017, where he worked in the lab of Christopher Cahill studying halogen bonding in f-block hybrid materials. Since 2017, Dr. Carter has worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Rebecca Abergel at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, investigating fundamental bonding interactions in f- and d-block coordination complexes with specific applications in radiochemical separations, nuclear medicine, metal-ion decorporation, and nuclear waste stewardship. Research in the Carter group will take advantage of the rich coordination chemistry of the f-block to address fundamental challenges in quantum information science, nuclear medicine, and separations chemistry.
