He worked with Prof. Patrick Holland at the University of Rochester and received his Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry in 2012. His doctoral research investigated earth abundant photocatalytic hydrogen production and low coordinate protein sites as artificial metal scaffolds. In 2012, Matthew was awarded a National Research Council Fellowship on a research proposal to work with Prof. Michel Gagné at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Dr. Tesia Chciuk

Tesia attended Cedar Crest College where she graduated in 2009 with a B.S. in chemistry with a minor in biology. Following this, she gained industrial experience at Eos Energy Storage, LLC. and Bethlehem Apparatus Co. Inc. before starting graduate work at Lehigh in 2012. Her research project consists of studying the role of solvent and additives in organic reductions featuring samarium(II). In her free time, Tesia enjoys Mediterranean cooking, hiking, reading novels, and trivia.

Dr. GodFred Fianu

Godfred Fianu is from Ghana in West Africa. He came to the United States in 2007 to pursue his undergraduate studies in Chemistry at Principia College in Illinois. In 2012, Godfred was admitted as a graduate student at Lehigh University for further studies in Organic Chemistry. Besides his love for research, Godfred enjoys reading inspirational books, dancing, playing soccer, and playing basketball. He also enjoys meeting people and making new friends. 

Dr. Gabrielle Haddad-Weiser

Gabrielle was a graduate student working on the Backscattering Interferometry (BSI) project in the Flowers Lab.  She has studied a variety of systems with BSI, including Acetylcholinesterase inhibitor binding and DNA duplex binding. She defended her doctoral defense entitled "Detection and Analysis of Molecular Interactions with Backscattering Interferometry" in August 2016.
