Izzy Leibler

First Year Graduate 

Izzy grew up in Armonk, NY. She graduated from Middlebury College, where she worked under Prof. Richard Bunt. In the Bunt Lab, Izzy worked on palladium-catalyzed asymmetric allylic aminations and the synthesis of novel BIPHEP chiral ligands. After college, Izzy conducted research at the National Institutes of Health under Dr. James Inglese and Dr. Ganesha Bantukallu, where she synthesized chemical probes for the treatment of parasitic infections. Outside of lab, Izzy enjoys watching baseball, running, hiking, and cooking.

Julia Borowski

First Year Graduate 

Julia was born and raised in Robbinsville, New Jersey. She graduated with a B.S. in chemistry from Yale University in 2018. At Yale, she conducted research under the guidance of Professor Robert Crabtree and Professor Gary Brudvig, synthesizing and characterizing transition metal complexes containing polydentate pyridine-alkoxide ligands for use as water oxidation catalysts. Outside of the lab, Julia enjoys running, playing volleyball, going to the beach, and spending time with family and friends.

Talia Steiman

Talia was born and raised in Hyde Park, New York. She graduated from Hamilton College in 2012 with a B.A. in chemistry, where she worked with Prof. Rosenstein and exploring radical cascade reactions. She obtained her Ph.D. from Purdue University in May of 2018 where she worked under the guidance of Prof. Chris Uyeda focusing on the synthesis and catalysis of dinuclear nickel complexes. In her spare time, Talia likes to go on nomadic adventures, which include finding new places to eat (especially good bagels for breakfast), eat bialys with her dog Bialy, and hike trails along bodies of water.

Stephen Ting

Second Year Graduate 

Stephen grew up in Cupertino, CA. He graduated from Stanford University, where he worked under Prof. Justin Du Bois. During his time there, Stephen developed a second-generation synthesis of an intermediate towards the natural product pactamycin, and also examined the copper-catalyzed N-arylation of cyclic sulfamates. Outside of chemistry, Stephen enjoys playing jazz piano, being around dogs, traveling, and spending time in the outdoors.

John Park

Second Year Graduate 

John was born and raised in San Jose, California. He graduated from UC Berkeley with a B.S. in Chemical Biology and a minor in Molecular Toxicology. At Berkeley, he worked on palladium catalyzed perfluoroalkylation of aryl halides under the supervision of Professor John F. Hartwig. Outside of lab, John enjoys taking walks, playing board games and trying new places to eat and drink coffee.

Sam Newman-Stonebraker

Second Year Graduate 

Sam was born and raised in New York City before moving to Long Island, NY at the age of 7. He graduated with a B.A. in Chemistry from Cornell University in 2017. While at Cornell, Sam did undergraduate research in the laboratory of Professor Geoffrey Coates, investigating double metal cyanide complexes as heterogeneous catalysts for epoxide/CO2 copolymerizations. Outside of lab, Sam enjoys hiking, baseball, and astronomy.

Marvin Parasram

Marvin was born and raised in The Bronx, New York. He received his B.S. degree in Chemistry from Stony Brook University in 2010. Later that year, he joined Professor Vladimir Gevorgyan’s group at the University of Illinois at Chicago as a Ph.D. student. During his Ph.D. studies, he was involved in the development of novel Pd-catalyzed synthetic methodologies. Outside the lab, he enjoys spending time with his family, snowboarding, kayaking, playing video games, watching sci-fi movies, reading fiction novels, and cheering for his New York Giants.                                                           parasram@princeton.edu
