Department of Chemistry welcomes Dr. Korey Carter
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.
