    About This Team Member

    Ken graduated from Xavier in the spring of 1997. He worked in the area of solid/solid interface structure and reactivity as it relates to the chemistry of computers.

    Ken presented his work at the Chicago ACS meeting in August 2001 and then departed in November for  a post-doc in the Sibener Lab at the University of Chicago.  Ken worked at Cabot Microelectronics in Aurora, IL for 1 year and is now an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, IL.
