PETER project moves forward
Alisa Leavesley has kindly agreed to join us at the start of August. Alisa received her bachelor’s degree in chemistry summa cum laud from James Madison University in 2013 and is anticipated to receive her doctoral degree in physical chemistry under the supervision of Songi Han in June 2018 from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research has focused on developing a high field (7 T/200 GHz) dual dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) instrument and understanding the spin physics behind DNP – specifically the influence of radical heterogeneity and clustering on DNP. The PETER project provides a great opportunity for Alisa to expand and apply her experience developing and improving high field instruments for magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
