Ananya Saju, 3rd year PhD student in Dr. Lacy's lab.
My research focuses on synthesis of bench stable manganese(III) precursor complexes for exploring the chemistry of high valent manganese. I investigate the coordination chemistry and reactivity of these complexes in an effort to demonstrate their utility.
I love the research I do and am grateful to have found an incredibly supportive and passionate mentor and peers, which makes graduate school a very fulfilling experience for me.
I am an amateur artist, I love creating oil paintings as well as digital art. I also enjoy travelling and exploring new places.
