University:University of California- Los Angeles
Personal Statement:My name is Brandon Jolly and I am a 2nd year graduate student in the Chong Liu Lab at UCLA. I am from Los Angeles, received my undergraduate degree from Sonoma State University and decided to come home for graduate school. Outside of research I enjoy playing music and surfing (mostly wiping out).
My research centers on sustainable alternatives to traditional synthetic methods and ways to improve catalytic methods. My current role in the center is to develop a flow reactor to assist with mass transport limitations of surface mediated processes. The ultimate goal is to further utilize flow cell technology to achieve spatial and temporal control for use in integrated catalysis. Combining flow dynamics with electrochemistry and surface grafting methods, we can carry out multi-step processes in tandem.
