Celia recently graduated with a chemistry degree from The College of New Jersey (Dec 2019). Throughout her time as an undergraduate, she conducted research at Colorado State University, The College of New Jersey, and Los Alamos National Lab. While she has experience in a variety of chemical subfields, all of her research has focused around replacing noble metal chemistry with greener and more sustainable methods. As a researcher with the Miyake lab in the summer of 2018, she synthesized photoredox catalysts which lead to a publication.
At New Iridium, Celia will push the boundaries of C-N cross-coupling methodology by replacing conventional palladium chemistry with sustainable photoredox method powered by organic photocatalysts.
She is thrilled to be back in Fort Collins working with the New Iridium team!
