The Kennemur Group believes that diversity in age, race, gender, sexual orientation, background, nationality, physical ability, and faith all serve to mirror the beautiful diversity in chemistry. We strive to welcome and build such diversity within our team and the future STEM workforce.
The Kennemur Research Group is centralized around organic and materials chemistry with the goal of synthesizing new polymeric materials with unique function and properties. The combination of chemistry and macromolecular architecture supplies us with a vast variety of polymer systems aimed at solving grand challenges in society. We are also heavily focused on leveraging the thermodynamic principles of equilibrium polymerization to afford sustainable and chemically recyclable materials from monomers that have been classically undervalued. See our research page for more details.
