Before coming to Smith in 2018, Allie Strom was an NIH postdoctoral fellow in the chemistry department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She conducted her doctoral research at the University of California, Berkeley, the University of Illinois and the University of Oslo.
Strom's interests include organometallic chemistry, catalysis and synthetic chemistry. The Strom group focuses on the development of new catalytic organometallic reactions through the study and application of mechanistic insights using the tools of physical organic and synthetic chemistry. These research interests are applied to the development of carbon-carbon bond-forming processes and new modes of activation of organic molecules.
