Faculty Mentor: Professor Omar Farha
Sylvia Hann received her B.S. in Chemistry with a concentration in Interdisciplinary Materials Science from Rowan University. Her research is currently focused on understanding the fundamental properties of urnamium Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOF) topologies and developing design rules for uranium MOFs by turning linker and node geometries.
