    About This Team Member

    Karla graduated from the St. Olaf in the spring of 1997 with a B.A in chemistry and math.  During her time as a graduate student at Michigan she discovered novel intermolecular CH-insertion reactions and CH-activation reactions using germanium.  Karla completed a post-doc with Bill Trogler at UCSD.  She currently lives in San Diego.
