I am a Ph.D. candidate in Prof. Seán Barry's group at Carleton University and I am preparing transition metal compounds to study their thermal mechanisms. I completed my M.Sc. (2018) and B.Sc. (2016) at Saint Mary's University, in Halifax, both under the supervision of Prof. Jason Clyburne. This background includes X-ray crystallography, inorganic synthesis of diketiminate complexes, the synthesis of unsaturated of halogen-containing organic salts, and mechanistic studies (spectroscopic and computational), to name a few.
