As a member of the Benedict group I am designing and synthesizing novel stimuli responsive dynamic materials which we can monitor using in situ single crystal X-ray diffraction. Currently I have been exploring colorimetric techniques for testing sonicator homogeneity using imine sonochemistry.

The atmosphere and overall friendly demeanor created by my fellow students and professors have lead to an overall enjoyable and healthy environment here at UB.

When not in the lab I like to draw, cosplay at conventions, or making custom dolls. 

Congratulations Eric!
