Kathryn Corp Defends Dissertation

Submitted by Christine Gormley on

Congratulations to Kathryn Corp, who defended her Ph.D. work “Ultrafast Photochemistry of Heptazine-Based Materials” on November 15, 2019. She was a student in Professor Schlenker’s laboratory. Kathryn is heading down to Berkeley, California to work at Opus 12. Opus 12 is a spin-out from research done at Stanford University and was grown at Cyclotron Road (a business accelerator at Berkeley National Lab). Opus 12 converts CO2 into commodity chemicals – turning pollution and waste into a profit stream and cleaner air. Kathryn is thrilled to be putting her chemistry degree to use in a field that will have a huge impact on the climate for future generations.
