Aaron Bosse


Aaron started out his chemistry career at The College of the Holy Cross developing methodologies using click chemistry under the study of Prof. Andre Isaacs. At Emory, Aaron researches C-H functionalization applied to total synthesis and method development of new carbene precursors. Aaron has also been the recipient of numerous awards, such as the ARCS Scholar award and a NSF GRFP honorable mention. He holds several leadership roles including chair of the Student Leadership Council for the CCHF and a position on the Next-Generation Advisory board for the journal Chem. Outside of lab Aaron is an avid rock climber, craft beer lover and enjoys relaxing with his dog and cat.
