These are the people with whom I have the pleasure of exploring new chemistry. Our exploration of the unknown provides meaningful education for undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral students.  After gaining sufficient insight about a system, we attempt to create a work that will teach and inspire other chemists about the chemistry.

Professor Weaver is looking for motivated students at all levels.  Anyone interested in being part of our team should should contact JDW ( about possible research opportunities.
