The Department of Chemistry is pleased to welcome Nate Jui and Eilaf Ahmed to our faculty!
Nathan Jui completed his terminal degree in chemistry at Princeton University (2011). Prior to joining the faculty at Emory in 2014, Jui was an NIH postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In addition to developing valuable chemical methods, Jui’s primary research focus is applying the power of synthetic chemistry to the study and treatment of cancer. His articles have been published in a number of leading journals including Science, Organic Letters, Chemical Communications, and the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
Eilaf Ahmed completed her terminal degree in chemistry at the University of Washington (2011). Prior to joining the faculty at Emory in 2014, Ahmed was a postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Ahmed’s research seeks to integrate creative tools from synthetic organic chemistry, polymer chemistry, and biology to develop novel, functional, and well-defined macromolecular structures, with a particular interest in the molecular design and synthesis of organic materials with interesting electronic and photonics properties, elucidation of structure-property relationships and factors that guide their self-assembly to address fundamental scientific challenges in applications ranging form biological imaging, early diagnostics, and delivery of therapeutics, to photovoltaics and magneto-electronic and optoelectronic devices. Her articles have been published in a number of leading journals including Advanced Materials, Chemistry of Materials, Macromolecules, and the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
