Welcome Bukuru and Tangi to join our group! Glad to have you.
Tangi is from Richmond Virginia, but his family immigrated from the pacific island of Tonga. He attended Virginia Commonwealth University for undergrad. He is pursuing a PhD in chemistry and interested in the field of inorganic chemistry and clean energy applications. He enjoys road trips, trying new restaurants and weight lifting. His favorite food is sushi or a good steak.
Bukuru was born in Tanzania and grew up in Chicago, Illinois. He graduated from Pomona College in 2021 with a B.A in Chemistry and a minor in Mathematics. While at Pomona, he conducted research with Pierre Darancet at Northwestern University Materials Research Science and Engineering Center on functionalization of two-dimensional materials. He then joined the Zhang group in 2021 as a GEM and NSF graduate research Fellow. His current research is focused on polymer upcycling into value-added products and the thermocatalytic reduction of CO2.
