Scott Chapp


Scott graduated from St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY where he worked with Dr. Adam D. Hill on the synthesis of heterobimetallic cobalt/zirconium complexes and materials for artificial photosynthesis. After receiving his undergraduate degree in 2015, Scott moved to Nashville, TN where he began graduate school at Vanderbilt University working in the lab of Dr. Nathan D. Schley on the activation of inert sp3 C-H, C-O and C-Si bonds at cationic iridium complexes. Currently, Scott is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at UNC Chapel Hill working in the lab of Dr. Alexander J. M. Miller. When Scott isn’t in lab he enjoys rock climbing, camping, fishing and playing hockey.
