Janet E. Macdonald, assistant professor of chemistry

B.S., McGill University, 2002
Ph.D., University of Alberta, 2008

Macdonald recently completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Institute of Chemistry at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Her work on semiconductor nanostructures has led to the discovery of a novel, unpredicted semiconductor nanocage. At Vanderbilt, she proposes to synthesize novel semiconductor nanostructures that could be used as photocatalysts to split water (generating oxygen and hydrogen for fuel).
