He received B.S. from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he had an undergraduate research under Prof. Fout on developing a cobalt catalyzed C-N cross coupling reaction. At Yale, he is currently a third year graduate student in Holland group.  His research focuses on understanding the mechanism of an iron catalyzed reductive olefin coupling reaction and identifying the active iron catalyst using Mössbauer spectroscopy. Outside of the lab, DK likes to think about interesting ideas to prank his friends and pranking them. He also thinks it’s fun to get drunk and loves Karaoke!
