Alan Sellinger Research Group
The Boss | email@example.com
Alan Sellinger received his B.S. in Chemistry from Eastern Michigan University in 1989. After 2 years as a Research Associate at Gelman Sciences, Inc., he obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1997 from the University of Michigan in Macromolecular Science & Engineering under the guidance of Prof. Richard M. Laine. He then moved to Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM for postdoctoral work with Prof. C. Jeffrey Brinker. From 1998 to 2003, he worked as a Research Scientist in the industrial R&D laboratories of Canon Research Center Americas, Palo Alto, CA and Opsys US Corporation, Fremont, CA. From 2003-2008, he held the position of Senior Scientist at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), under the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Republic of Singapore. He then moved to Stanford University from 2008-2012 as both Consulting Associate Professor in Materials Science & Engineering, and Executive Director of the Center for Advanced Molecular Photovoltaics (CAMP). Since 2012 he has been Professor of Chemistry/Materials Science at the Colorado School of Mines and Senior Scientist at the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL). His research interests are in the synthesis of new hybrid materials for application in high surface materials for gas storage and catalyst supports, light emitting diodes (OLED), photovoltaics (OPV), thin film transistors (OTFT), and scintillation (radiation detection).

Caleb completed a B.S. degree in Chemistry and B.A. degree in Computer science at Pacific Lutheran University in 2017. He then spent two years working at Los Alamos National Laboratory researching ceramic scintillators. As a current member of the Sellinger Group, Caleb is interested in studying plastic scintillators. Outside of lab he enjoys spending time with his wife and their dog, climbing, and hiking around Colorado.
Anastasia Kuvayskaya | email@example.com
Anastasia received her B.S. (2018) in Chemistry with concentration in biochemistry and M.S (2020) in Chemistry from East Tennessee State University. As a graduate student in Dr. Sellinger’s lab, she is working on the development and synthesis of ligands for photo separation of critical lanthanides. Outside of lab she loves spending time with her family, traveling, off-roading, and exploring everything the Rocky Mountains have to offer.
Dina Liacopoulos | firstname.lastname@example.org
Dina received her B.S. (2021) in Materials Science Engineering from Virginia Tech. As a graduate student in Dr. Sellinger’s lab, she is working on the synthesis of organic glass scintillators. Outside of lab she loves spending time with her dog, dancing, and taking road trips with friends.
Yooran Im | email@example.com
Yooran received her B.S. degree in Chemistry at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) in 2022. As a graduate student in Dr. Sellinger’s lab, she is working on the 3-D printing of plastic scintillators. Outside of the lab, she loves exploring her creative side and hanging out with friends.
Robert Santore | firstname.lastname@example.org
Bobby competed his B.S. in chemistry (2019) at the SUNY School of Environmental Science and Forestry with a focus in natural and synthetic polymer chemistry. As a graduate student in Dr. Sellinger’s lab, he is working on synthesizing and characterizing biomimetic iron-sulfur clusters for catalyzing carbon dioxide reduction reactions. Outside of the lab he spends his time doing photography, homebrewing, and cooking.
Ashford Hollis | email@example.com
Ashford completed a B.S. degree in Chemistry at the United States Air Force Academy in 2023. As a current member of the Sellinger Group, Ashford is interested in the synthesis and characterization of charge transport polymers for perovskite solar cells. Outside the lab, he enjoys spending time with his wife, reading, and cooking.
Tristan Huskie | firstname.lastname@example.org
Tristan received his B.S in Chemistry from Fort Lewis College in 2023. As a graduate student in Dr. Sellinger’s Lab, he is working on materials for application in plastic scintillators and perovskite solar cells. Outside of class he loves to spend time outside, skateboarding, and playing chess.
Grant Bell | email@example.com
Grant is a senior pursuing a B.S. in Quantitative Biosciences and Engineering with a minor in Computer Science at the Colorado School of Mines. As an undergraduate in the Sellinger group, Grant studies both plastic and glass scintillators. Outside of the lab, Grant plays on the varsity soccer team and enjoys spending time in the mountains and country swing dancing.
