Corey Damon, 4th-year PhD student in Prof. Detty's group
"My research is focused on the development of antifouling and fouling-release hull coatings for the United States Navy. The work involves incorporation of transition metal catalysts in silica frameworks via the sol-gel process and characterization of the resultant xerogels.
I enjoy being a graduate student at UB due to the wealth of resources that accompany the ability to collaborate with other research groups. I love living in Buffalo due to the small-town, neighborly feeling that accompanies all the experiences a large city has to offer.
Outside of lab I enjoy exploring Western New York, participating in intramurals, and watching the Bills. Of course nothing beats spending time with my wife, Allison, and my dog Zeus."
