Tanner successfully defends his Ph.D. Thesis

Congrats to the Engle lab’s newest doctor, Tanner C. Jankins, Ph.D.! In Tanner’s Ph.D. research, he spearheaded a new research directing focused on W(0)/W(II) redox catalysis, where non-classical seven coordinate geometries at W(II) can be exploited to enable facile alkene isomerization–functionalization processes. Outside of the lab, Tanner served as Engle group chef, the Scripps resident extreme sports instructor, and organometallics grad course TA. Congratulation on all of your success Tanner! Tanner will soon start his postdoc in the lab of Prof. Bill Morandi at ETH Zürich.
