Matthew Mendonca received a B.S. in chemistry from The College of William and Mary. His research is currently focused on using molecular modeling to develop nanoporous materials such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for capturing toxic compounds. This research involves using density functional theory calculations to model reaction pathways at the MOF active sites, and it is important for use in future applications like destroying or storing chemical warfare agents and toxic industrial chemicals.
