CENTC postdoctoral researcher Dr. Thomas Lyons has been awarded an American Competiveness in Chemistry Fellowship (ACC-F) from the National Science Foundation. The ACC-F program seeks to build ties between academic, industrial, national laboratory, and NSF center researchers, and also involves beginning scientist in efforts to broaden participation in chemistry. Dr. Lyons received his B.S. in Chemistry from DePaul University in 2005 and earned his Ph.D. in 2010 from the University of Michigan working with Melanie Sanford. He is now a postdoctoral fellow at the University of North Carolina with Prof. Maurice Brookhart. This fellowship will support Tom's research on new transition metal-containing catalysts for transfer dehydrogenation of alkanes, which is carried out in collaboration with scientists at Eastman Chemical.
