Dr. Joseph Zadrozny to join faculty in August 2017

Posted: February 20th, 2017

The Department of Chemistry is excited to announce that Dr. Joseph Zadrozny will be starting his independent career at Colorado State University in August 2017 as an Assistant Professor in Chemistry.

 Joe is currently working as postdoctoral researcher at Northwestern University with Professor Danna E. Freedman. His current work is focused on the design of molecules and materials that may serve as the fundamental units of logic in a quantum computing system.

 Joe obtained his Ph.D. under the guidance of Professor Jeffrey R. Long at the University of California, Berkeley, in 2013. Joe’s graduate work spearheaded the development of two-coordinate transition metal complexes as magnetic mimics of lanthanide ions — an important step toward powerful magnetic materials composed of Earth-abundant metals.

 At Colorado State University, Joe and his coworkers will design materials and molecules that enable the control of the magnetic moments of electrons and nuclei. When realized, these systems will inspire breakthroughs in pressing challenges of magnetic resonance imaging, photocatalytic reactivity, and information processing.

 Welcome to CSU Joe!!
