Research Interests: 

The Mindiola research program entails the synthesis of transition metal complexes that possess interesting coordination environments, reactive ligand scaffolds, and unusual electronic and magnetic features. Most of our efforts are devoted to the synthesis of early- and mid-transition metal complexes, especially systems that are unsaturated and reactive.  We enjoy preparing and studying transition metal radicals, in particular those of the 3d series. In addition to synthesis, we explore new reaction chemistry with small molecules and novel mechanisms in order to understand how these transformations can improve or be of importance to industrial processes. One of our themes has been the assembly of metal-complexes having metal-ligand multiple bonds and their reactivity with small saturated and unsaturated molecules. To date, the Mindiola group has produced more than 120 peer reviewed scientific contributions.

New frontiers in social evolution theory

Host: Josh Plotkin (Biology)

Lynch Lecture Hall


Cooperation between organisms is a major driving force of biological organization at all levels, from single cells to whole ecosystems. Understanding the evolutionary dynamics of cooperation and other social traits therefore is a central goal of evolutionary theory. I will talk about my recent work that aims to advance the frontiers of social evolution theory in two directions.

High-throughput RNA structure analysis from chemical footprinting experiments


Host: Randy Kamien (Physics)


Lynch Lecture Hall


New regulatory roles continue to emerge for both natural and engineered RNAs, many of which have specific structures essential to their function. This highlights a growing need to develop technologies that enable rapid and accurate characterization of structural features within complex RNA populations. Yet, available techniques that are reliable are also vastly limited by technological constraints, while the accuracy of popular computational methods is generally poor. These limitations thus pose a major barrier to comprehensive determination of structure from sequence.
