Bio

Research in Jennifer Swift's lab is directed toward gaining a more detailed understanding of the mechanisms by which molecular crystals nucleate and grow. Most of the projects in this research area are quite interdisciplinary - meaning students will be expected to gain experience in at least a few different areas of chemistry including x-ray crystallography, atomic force microscopy (AFM), organic synthesis, and computational modeling.

Professor Swift teaches Organic Chemistry Lecture I, Organic Chemistry Lab I & II, and Solid State Organic Chemistry.
