Laurel Jones


I am a PhD student in the Schatz group. I grew up in Redmond, Washington. I received my B.S. in Chemistry from Fordham University in 2016 where I also minored in mathematics and philosophy.

My interest in theoretical and computational chemistry began during my undergraduate research where I modeled small molecules in proteins. My current research focuses on modeling the active sites of nitrogen fixation catalysts in order to optimize them for ammonia production.

In my free time, I enjoy reading and making crafts.
