About Enzo: 

In the fall of 2019, I began my career at Ithaca College as a chemistry major, a United States Air Force ROTCcadet, and a proud member of the Ithaca College NCAA football team. As I spent more time in the classroom, I found myself drawn to the fascinating world of chemistry research. This led me to join Dr. Mike Haaf's lab and delve into the intriguing realm of

1-hydrosilatrane as a catalyst for ring-opening polymerization of cyclic esters (lactones). My experiences in Dr. Haaf's lab ignited a passion within me to pursue further education beyond my undergraduate studies. This aspiration guided me to the University of North Carolina Charlotte, where I had the privilege of working under the mentorship of Dr. Juan Vivero-Escoto, further immersing myself in the captivating field of gold-coated nanoparticles. Currently, I am a dedicated Phd graduate student at Lehigh University determined to earn my PhD and ultimately embark on a fulfilling career in the industry.
