Chemical Kinetics

Vincent Lowe

Vincent Lowe, a junior in chemistry with a minor in biological sciences, has been working in the laboratory of Regents Professor of chemistry Paul Marshall since May 2020, two days before he graduated from high school. His research thus far has focused heavily on the key species of ammonia and its use as a potential clean, carbon-free fuel source having only nitrogen and water as the main byproducts. His research is computational, using Gaussian 16. He plans to use his research in chemical kinetics as a foundation for a future Ph.D. in pharmaceutical sciences with a focus on pharmacometrics, a novel science that uses mathematical and statistical models of biological, pharmacological and/or physiological process to analyze, predict and stimulate drug-patient interactions that aid in the discovery and development of therapeutic drugs.
