An Abstract: Using Spatial Data and Causal Trees to Analyze the Effectiveness of Environmental Aid Allocation


By conservative estimates, hundreds of millions of dollars of international aid is allocated to environmental protection each year. Despite the growing global importance of environmental conservation and many local case studies, the impact of this aid is poorly understood on a global level. This lack of information is due to the vast diversity of geographic […]

Abstract: Hydrogen Evolution Catalyzed by an Ethynyl Substituated Iron Polypyridal Complex

I plan to expand on the work of the McNamara research group at the college, which looks at the use of novel base transition metal complexes that will catalyze the reduction of protons to evolve hydrogen gas. To this end, I propose to fully synthesize an iron complex structure whose ligand is composed of a […]
