José Miguel Veleta

José is a third-year graduate student in the Chemistry and Biochemistry Ph.D. program at the University of Arizona. He is from El Paso, TX and was raised in the border city of Juárez, MX. He received his B.S. in Chemistry and M.S. in Environmental Science from the University of Texas at El Paso, where he conducted research under the mentoring of Dr. Dino Villagrán. His previous research involved the synthesis of bimetallic complexes (M2 = Mo, W, Ru) as multi-electron redox platforms, and post-synthetic modifications of metal-organic frameworks. His main areas of interest are inorganic and organometallic chemistry, focusing in the synthesis and characterization metal complexes, and the use of DFT to understand the electronic structure of compounds. José joined the Gianetti group in October of 2017, where he is focusing on the synthesis and tandem reactivity of late-late transition metal complexes.
