Ryan Josef Witzke

Postdoctoral Appointee


Ryan Witzke is a postdoctoral researcher in the Catalysis Science Group of the Chemical Sciences and Engineering Division. Ryan’s research focuses on the development of non-traditional supports for surface organometallic chemistry. Specifically, he is interested in modulating the characteristics of catalyst supports to effect change on grafted organometallic fragments, analogous to ligand modification in homogeneous systems.
