The Engle lab bids farewell to our superstar visiting Master’s student Roman Kleinmans, who will now return to WWU Münster to pursue his Ph.D. studies with Prof. Frank Glorius. Roman was a valued member of Team Nickel, and made important contributions to advancing new methods for conjunctive alkene cross-coupling directed by simple functional groups. When he wasn’t in the lab, Roman learned how to surf, took a California road trip, and made many great friends in- and outside of Scripps. Props to Joe for great mentorship throughout Roman’s stay in San Diego. We will miss you, Roman! Best of luck in your Ph.D.
