I received my PhD degree from the University of Rochester after spending 4 years on the research of nickel-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions with epoxides and aziridines. Thanks to the great guidance of Professor Daniel J. Weix, who is currently a tenured professor at the said university, my epoxide work was published on Journal of the American Chemical Society as two separate papers . I am current a post doctoral researcher at MIT under Professor Stephen L. Buchwald.
