One of my projects focuses on modifying Ru compounds to shift the irradiation energy towards the therapeutic window for photodynamic therapy. A second project involves the study of the cellular co-localization of metal-metal bonded Rh2 compounds with attached fluorophores. Both endeavors involve extensive organic and inorganic synthetic skills and an in-depth knowledge of various characterization techniques including Electronic Spectroscopy, Electrochemistry, Computational Calculations, Mass Spectrometry, Single Crystal X-ray diffraction, Photochemical Studies, and Cellular Assays.
