Jeffrey D Einkauf

R&D Associate Staff

Jeffrey grew up in Florida where he received his Ph.D. from Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in 2017 under Dr. Daniel T. de Lill. Here, he studied the photophysical properties of lanthanide-containing metal-organic frameworks. After being a full-time lecturer at FAU for one year, he moved to College Station, TX and started his postdoctoral training at Texas A&M University under the guidance of Dr. Jonathan D. Burns. During this time, he focused on the development of new technologies for used nuclear fuel recycling via group actinide co-crystallization. Jeffrey joined the Chemical Separations Group in 2019 where he is currently a staff scientist. His research interests include anion separations using photoswitchable heterocycles and selective removal of oxyanions by chelating hydrogen-bonding ligands.
