Ryan Stowe began working with the 3DL4US team as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Chemistry at Michigan State University. His work as a research associate mentored by Prof. Melanie Cooper focused on supporting molecular-level sense-making in high school chemistry students, and engaging undergraduates in scientific practices in the context of organic chemistry. Ryan is now an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Ryan earned his B.A. in chemistry at Albion College (2010) and Ph.D. in organic chemistry at The Scripps Research Institute (2016). His doctoral studies, conducted under the guidance of Prof. William Roush, focused on the design and synthesis of histone deacetylase inhibitors and the development of methods useful in natural products synthesis.
