The New York University Department of Chemistry is pleased to announce the hiring of two faculty members.
Marvin Parasram will join the NYU Chemistry research program in chemical biology in August, 2020. Marvin earned his graduate degree at the University of Illinois at Chicago under the direction of Vladimir Gevorgyan and comes to us from an NIH Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Princeton University in the laboratory of Abigail Doyle. Research in the Parasram Lab will focus on developing novel synthetic methodologies for the difunctionalization of organic systems. Their approach will aim to provide innovative solutions to pressing challenges in synthetic chemistry.
Claudia Avalos will join the NYU Chemistry research program in materials in January 2021. Claudia earned her graduate degree at University of California at Berkeley under the direction of Alex Pines and did her postdoctoral research at L'Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, in the laboratory of Lyndon Emsley. Research in the Avalos Lab will focus on developing and applying nitrogen-vacancy magnetometry and solid-state magnetic resonance methods to study structure-function relationships in photoactive and technologically relevant materials
