Thomas Theis, PhD (UC Berkeley)
Assistant Professor of Chemistry (NC State)
and Adjunct of Biomedical Engineering (UNC & NC State)
Evan graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University with a B.S. in chemistry. His undergraduate research was conducted under Professor Jean Fotie where he studied heterogeneous Pt(0) catalyzed hydrosilylation reactions. He started work in the Theis Lab in Fall of 2018 and is interested in the development of novel SABRE catalysts and SABRE hyperpolarization systems.
Patrick graduated from the University of Richmond with a B.S. in chemistry and a B.A. in international studies, concentrating in international economics. He started work with the Theis lab in fall 2018 and is interested in development of spin dynamics and engineering methodologies for the application of SABRE parahydrogen-based hyperpolarization in MRI and zero-field NMR systems.
