Biography

Lisa Olshansky finished up her postdoctoral fellowship with Andy Borovik at UC-Irvine, following her PhD at MIT where she pursued a collaboration between Professors Nocera and Stubbe. Her PhD work focused on biophysics of electron transfer, whereas her postdoc moved up to the supramolecular chemistry scale. Lisa's future projects include probing dynamics of metalloproteins, and using excited state charge separation to control reversibility of reactions.
