 Curriculum Vitae

pronunciation of Theis: “Tice”


Dr. rer. nat. Sören Lehmkuhl

Dr. Lehmkuhl received his PhD from RWTH Aachen University working on unconventional NMR experiments and hyperpolarization technology. He joined the Theis lab in 2019 and develops parahydrogen based NMR technologies and their applications, ranging from miniaturized NMR to in vivo  hyperpolarized MRI.

Graduate Students:

Evan Akeroyd

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.


Liana Gouveia

Liana graduated with a Bachelor and Masters degree from Federal University of Pernambuco (Brazil) in Chemistry. She started working in the Theis lab in Spring 2019, with interest in spin dynamics, and development of parahydrogen based NMR technologies.

Patrick TomHon

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.
