After working abroad at the Institut für Anorganische Chemie in Göttingen, Deutschland Jeremiah joined Drexel University in September of 2017.

Current Group Members

Nichole grew up in south Jersey and begun her college career at Cumberland County College before transferring to Drexel. She is currently conducting her senior research project and is always excited to learn a new spectroscopic technique or play a tabletop game (She hopes to some day create one herself!) She joined the group in October 2018 as a Senior.

Diana grew up in Kennett Square PA and begun her college career in a local community college before transferring to Drexel. She is currently conducting her senior research project and excels at air-free work on the Schlenk line.  To relax she either jogs or bakes and joined the Scepaniak group in October 2018 as a Senior.

Eun Byoung grew up in Gangwon, South Korea and Georgia, Unites States. She is currently in her second Co-Op rotation as a pre-junior majoring in Chemistry at Drexel University. In the laboratory she would rather be doing coordination chemistry than running a column.  In her free time she likes to watch animation, read korean poems, exercise, and explore Philadelphia. She joined the group in April 2018 as a Sophomore and was awarded the 2018 Maryanoff Endowed Research Prize.

Leeann grew up in Wilkes Barre, PA and is currently in her first Co-Op rotation as a sophomore majoring in Chemistry, having joined the group in April 2019. 

Alexa grew up in Douglassville PA and graduated from Rosemont College in Spring of 2019 where she made nanoparticles using green tea! She joined the group in June 2019 and when she isn't in the lab she is most likely hanging out with her dog Pepper.

This could be you!
